Bebop Spoken There

Jasper Høiby: "These days everybody thinks they know something about everything, and there are so many opinions being aired all over the place that aren't fully formed because there are so many platforms to say anything you want to when you feel like it." - (Jazzwise June 2020)

Dave Rempis:Ten years from now, I can see musicians streaming concerts in real time and charging a minimal amount for people to watch.” - (DownBeat September 2013)

Ken Vandermark, Barry Guy & Mark Sanders at the Star & Shadow Cinema, Newcastle. Report by Russell Corbett.

Chicagoan Vandermark is in the tradition of Charles Gayle (at the Star & Shadow last year) and Peter Brotzmann - a verocious player, playing without compromise.
Double bassist Barry Guy and percussionist Mark Saunders met him head-on--both have the energy and intensity to go twelve rounds with him. The one-hour set did have light and shade but it was the primal scream that captivated the audience; a good turn-out of about sixty. Tenor-man Vandermark loved 'the space' (the venue). The audience loved him, Guy and Saunders.
Alex Bonney (trumpet) & Dave Kane (double bass) provided a well-paced support set. A series of brief, to the point pieces.

Yup! there are few audiences that remain uncaptivated by primal screams.
