A total gem from Ken Vandermark's Audiographic Records imprint.
He writes quite brilliantly for large ensembles (for my money, the best there is in this department) and has the ability to constantly bring out the absolute best from his collaborators....(4/5ths of the V5 are present here as well as a fair amount of the rest of Chicago's finest).
This stuff is so hard to do well, let alone exceptionally (as in this instance)!
Live and unrepeatable; a unique document that defies categorization...
Support this label please, it is immediate, momentous and necessary music.
