Extraordinary Popular Delusions: Apocryphal Fire in the Warehouse, and Other Explanations

Read "Apocryphal Fire in the Warehouse, and Other Explanations" reviewed by Mark Corroto


The hit-and-miss improvisation of Extraordinary Popular Delusions has to be admired. The quartet's instant composing (or group improvisation) often begins like a psychodynamic free association, with the players relaying whatever comes into their minds. This music making without the censorship of preplanning or forethought can yield gems or germs. EPD band, whose previous ...

Territory Band: Collide

Read "Collide" reviewed by Mark Corroto


Collide is Ken Vandermark's sixth release for his transatlantic small big band (or is it a large small group?) of American jazz meets European improvisers.

Territory Band-5: New Horse For The White House

Read "New Horse For The White House" reviewed by Mark Corroto


You can certainly find plenty of heady intellectual discussion surrounding Ken Vandermark's Territory Band. He has taken the concepts of jazz and European music and interlaced them with composed and improvised music. (Was that last statement redundant?) In doing so, Vandermark continues the argument begun the day Louis Armstrong played a familiar march “his own way." ...

Territory Band: Company Switch

Read "Company Switch" reviewed by Rex  Butters


Ken Vandermark's fourth collection with the Territory Band, Company Switch, continues to mine ideas too big for the Vandermark 5. Lasse Marhaug, who replaces Kevin Drumm on electronics, seems more inclined to contribute color and texture to the ensemble's experimentation. Given Vandermark's imagination and the assembly of musicians, sparks fly and vast amounts of musical landscape ...

Territory Band: Map Theory

Read "Map Theory" reviewed by Germein Linares


Ken Vandermark's ongoing Territory Band makes its third appearance on Map Theory, a sprawling and challenging album of six tunes. The large group format (twelve musicians strong) and the crew's like-minded atmosphere make for ample freedoms, producing refreshing music most of the time, with occasional lapses into noise and chaos. Each of the six originals by ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
