FME: Montage (Okka)
Label: Okka    
Released in: USA    

Fourth release from the prolific Chicago reed player Ken Vandermark and his FME trio (Free Music Ensemble). This double disc of live recordings presents several concepts, each dedicated to a film legend (Orson Welles, Stanley Kubrick, Sergio Leone, Buster Keaton, etc). Vandermark is a leading free player, and he doesn't disappoint, with consistently challenging and enthusiastic playing from this incredibly talented set of musicians. Not to be missed!
