FREE PERFORMANCE: Sunday, March 24, 2013, 2:00pm
CHICAGO: Though they have worked together for more than 20 years, saxophonists Mats Gustafsson and Ken Vandermark have never performed as a duo, until today. Two of the key figures emerging from the 1990s improvised music renaissance, Gustafsson and Vandermark are both boundlessly energetic and deeply sensitive players. This should prove to be a memorable “first meeting” for two dear friends. A live recording, it is destined for release on CvsD’s own label.
