Vandermark, Ken and Mats Gustafsson: Verses (Corbett vs. Dempsey)
Label: Corbett vs. Dempsey    
Released in: USA    


"Swedish saxophonist Mats Gustafsson and Chicago saxophonist and clarinetist Ken Vandermark have worked together extensively since the mid 1990s, in groups of their own and as members of the Peter Brötzmann Chicago Tentet. Oddly, they had never performed duo before March 2013, when they squared off at Corbett vs. Dempsey gallery. The result was a delirious journey through extended techniques, intimate improvisation, and full-throttle flame-throwing, with an emphasis on the more delicate, sensitive side. The CD presents the entire concert, all six pieces in the order they were performed. A pair of today's master improvisers, at the top of their game, in a free music summit built for two."-Corbett vs. Dempsey
