Wooley, Nate / Ken Vandermark: East By Northwest (Pleasure of the Text Records)

Label: Pleasure of the Text Records    
Released in: USA    

"Chicago saxophonist and composer Ken Vandermark, and New York trumpet stalwart Nate "Wooley, have been operating in each other's orbits for the past five years. For this project, they work with each other's iconoclastic compositional and improvisational vocabularies. Taking their cues from the underappreciated work of John Carter and Bobby Bradford, Vandermark and Wooley work together to create an organic combination of jazz tradition, free improvisation, and modern composition in this new raw and intimate duo."-Pleasure of the Text

Limited edition of 500, all copies are hand numbered and packaged with love.
