The Ex guitar section (Terrie Hessels and Andy Moor) meet the Vandermark/Nilssen-Love duo live at Bimhuis in Amsterdam for an incredible album of improvisation.

Lean Left (The Ex / Vandermark / Nilssen-Love)
Volume 1 - The Ex Guitars meet the Nilssen-Love / Vandermark Duo

Lean Left (The Ex / Vandermark / Nilssen-Love): Volume 1 - The Ex Guitars meet the Nilssen-Love / Va (Smalltown Superjazzz)
Label: Smalltown Superjazzz    
Released in: Norway    

"Documented at the end of their first tour, this is the first set of material recorded at their Bimhuis show on March 19th, 2008. The musicians began each concert as a duo (guitars or drums/reeds), then would continue as a quartet. Completely improvised music that combines the freer elements of the Ex with the thorough communication developed in the years that Nilssen-Love and Vandermark have worked together; everything put into a hard edged groove kaleidoscope. Lean Left toured in Europe during November of 2009, and plans to travel to Japan in the spring of 2010."-Smalltown Superjazzz
