Cellarman and Suburban Ambassador of the Sugar Maple. Though my favorite thing to drink is Mescal, I'm fine like wine when I start to rap.
I like walks in the woods and fires at night, add a splash of bourbon, and I'm feelin' alright.

The high impact duo of Paal Nilssen-Love (drums) and Ken Vandermark (reeds) has been working together at an accelerated rate since 2002, and they have put out seven eight of exceptional and wide ranging improvised music since then. Though they have both worked in many critically acclaimed groups- from the Peter Brötzmann Chicago Tentet, Lean Left (with Terrie Hessels and Andy Moor of The Ex) to Double Tandem (with Dutch saxophonist, Ab Baars)- they have continued to return to their duo for more than a dozen years because it remains crucial to their creative output. Their concert at the Sugar Maple on January 25th will follow three days of recording at Experimental Sound Studio in Chicago.
