Ken Vandermark | Back
Tenor sax, clarinet, bass clarinet

Although born in Boston, it's as a mover and shaker on the Chicago scene that Ken Vandermark really came to prominence, both as a full-on reeds player and as the leader or organiser of a host of significant groups, most notably his own Vandermark 5 (who did a Jazz North East gig at the Caedmon Hall in October 2001). Musically voracious, he draws equally from the traditions of American free jazz and European improv, as well as dipping into rock, R'n'B, and even contemporary classical music - and whatever he does, he does it with total commitment.
