Multi-reedist Ken Vandermark has been investigating cutting-edge improvisational strategies within a vast array of musical contexts for nearly 30 years now. He’s been a vital link between the Chicago and European improvising communities. In 1999, he was awarded the MacArthur prize for music.

Tokar's larger-than-life tone and impeccable intonation is front-and-center ... " - John Vincent Barron, Jazzreview.com, USA

Percussionist Klaus Kugel is a commanding force behind the drum set." - John Barron, Jazzreview.com, USA
These three discs... show Kugel as a drummer whose nearly boundless energy and imagination cannot be confined by neat categories." - Ed Hazel, Signal To Noise, USA
