Live recordings from Chicago with Fred Anderson on sax, the 6th Territory Band release in a planned series of 12 from Chicago's Ken Vandermark's electro-acoustic jazz band.
Territory Band-6 With Fred Anderson
Collide (for Fred Anderson, Bruno Johnson, and Michael Orlove)
Released in: USA
"The Territory Band is an international collection of musicians that was first organized by Ken Vandermark in the start of 2000 as a large ensemble investigation of composition and improvisation. Over the course of the group, Vandermark has tried to develop an electro-acoustic aesthetic that would be able to incorporate a broad range of ideas about composition and improvisation. Sources of inspiration have been derived from the history of improvised music established in the United States and Western Europe, and from strategies traceable to late 20th century composition. In addition, the architecture of the music has been directly affected by other areas of creative action- painting, film, photography, poetry, and dance. Vandermark has tried to design compositional frameworks that liberate and motivate the improvisers in the Territory Band rather than confine them through a rigid set of directives and overly complex material. It is also important to note that the predetermined components have been organized with this specific set of musicians in mind, no other group of individuals could perform with anywhere near the same results."-Ken Vandermark
