Boomkat Product Review:
As a duo, these two celebrated musicians have made quite an impact on the contemporary free-jazz scene. Their two Dual Pleasure albums were extremely well-received critically, and their third record, Seven, is branded by Smalltown Superjazzz as one of the best albums they've ever released. For their latest venture, Vandermark and Nilssen-Love have made two new albums: one recorded on the 10th June 2007 in Milwaukee, the other on the following day over in Chicago. Reeds maestro Vandermark is on home turf here, having been a staple of the Windy City's live jazz scene for around twenty years. Nilssen-Love sounds no less comfortable in his surroundings however, and the Norwegian's versatility as a drummer really shines through, switching tone and pace multiple times through half-hour opener 'New Paper', accompanying his saxophonist partner as his elaborate lead lines shift between florid free expression and wending, searching melodicism. 'Text Of Sound' delves down into a more lyrical mode, making for an absorbing and often very beautiful fifteen minute piece, while on 'Mort Subite' Vandermark traipses playfully through the early stages on clarinet, leaving Nilssen-Love to come up with a bizarre percussive accompaniment whose sonorities probably have more in common with a woodwork class than regular drumming. Recommended.
