"This is complex composed music delivered with the passion of free playing, never losing control, but delivering a satisfying punch. The recording was made for the lucky audience of the Artacts Festival for Jazz and Improvised Music in Austria in, 2018." -Paul Acquaro, Free Jazz Blog

Audiographic Records proudly announces the upcoming release of Soigne Ta Droite, Ken Vandermark’s first large ensemble recording in more than four years. The band is called Entr’acte and is a veritable “who’s who” of the most interesting and important musicians currently working in the field of experimental music: Dieb13, Elisabeth Harnik, Steve Heather, Terrie Hessels, Didi Kern, Mette Rasmussen, Jasper Stadhouders, Joe Williamson, and Nate Wooley.

The material was recorded in March of 2018 at the Artacts Festival for Jazz and Improvised Music in St. Johann, Austria, during a performance that garnered a standing ovation from the audience. Soigne Ta Droite includes all the music performed on that occasion, three long-form compositions that highlight the innovative characteristics of the musicians involved and which focus on large scale group interplay.

The release of Soigne Ta Droite coincides with the appearance of Entr’acte during Ken Vandermark’s residency at the Krakow Jazz Autumn in October. This new group builds on the knowledge Vandermark has gained through his long term passion for large ensembles and composing for them. It’s a thread of creative activity that goes back for more than two decades and includes performances and recordings by the Peter Brötzmann Chicago Tentet, the Territory band, the Resonance Ensemble, and Audio One. 

Without question, the release of Soigne Ta Droite by Entr’acte will be an event. The CD is going to be issued in a limited edition of 500 copies, orders are being taken now in advance of the album’s official release in October.
