I’m super excited that my brother is going to be playing in the Boston area.  It’s pretty rare that he comes to town.

Ken Vandermark Baritone Solo - 1

I’m also excited that he’s going to be playing at Seven Cycles.  What?  Dang straight – right on the factory floor.  I’m going to try and get him to do some frame building, too.

He’s touring with a duo for this show:  Nate Wooley and him.  Ken’s also doing a one time quartet set the same evening that includes Jacob William, Laurence Cook, Nate, and Ken.

It’s going to be an awesome evening.  I recommend the event to anyone that has any interest in music of any kind.

Ken’s music is extremely diverse so it’s difficult to define in simple terms or in one or two genres.  He describes it as:

“The exploration of contemporary music that deals directly with advanced methods of improvisation.”

Here’s a cool solo piece that Ken improvised back in May, “for Miles Davis, whatever corner he’s on now.”
