Ken Vandermark & Paal Nilssen-Love join Ex guitarists Andy Moor and Terrie Ex in two balanced and blistering improvisations, the 2nd part of their 2008 concert at Bimhuis in Amsterdam.

Lean Left - The Ex Guitars Meet Nilssen-Love/Vandermark Duo
Volume 2

Lean Left - The Ex Guitars Meet Nilssen-Love/Vandermark Duo: Volume 2 (Smalltown Superjazzz)
Label: Smalltown Superjazzz    
Released in: Norway    

Ken Vandermark & Paal Nilssen-Love have played together since 2000 in various settings & as duo since 2002. The duo work within free expression while including a strong element of heavy rhythmic groove, melody, sound & noise. Together, they join Andy Moor & Terrie Ex of Dutch legends THE EX, who are known for mixing elements of rock, free improvisation, traditional folk & abstract noise to create their own very unique soundworld. Both duos converge, crashing along sometimes, creating a cacophonous racket but always musical & always ready to change direction or turn a new corner. The music is extroverted, energetic, powerful & inclusive but also confrontational & provocative, where rhythm, noise, melody & harmony melt together in perfect union.
