Ken Vandermark outside Kraak, Manchester, after his trio gig in October 2012. Ken is one of the most versatile ansd busiest composers and saxophonists in the music. The variety of groups he convenes, together with an extensive recorded output is staggering. Probably the best entry point to his music are the Vandermark 5 records. Needless to say, a musician I greatly admire and try to catch whenever he visits the UK.
