Vandermark & Gustafsson Duo

corbett vs dempsey
The Corbett vs Dempsey gallery was the scene for the duo of Mats Gustafsson and Ken Vandermark.
The half a dozen improvisations - Mats on alto/tenor/baritone saxes and Ken on tenor sax/clarinet/bass clarinet - was the duo's debut though their association dates back to 1994.
Nice to see a sizable crowd too!

The set was recorded, so keep an ear out for it at Catalytic-Sound.

This was my second time hearing Gustafsson in person - the 1st was when The Thing toured New Zealand in 2011. Unfortunately I couldn't get to the gig(s). However I did make it to the trio's improvisation workshop -  one of the best workshops from touring artists that I have attended.
