Territory Band (with Ken Vandermark)Transatlantic Bridge ... CD
Okka Disk, 2000. Used ... $6.99
Keeping his tradition of magnanimous collaboration strong and true, Ken Vandermark here works in "territory band" format with a host of excellent Chicago players (Kent Kessler, Jeb Bishop, Jim Baker, Fred Lonberg-Holm), and out-of-towners (Axel Dorner, Paul Lytton, and others) in a "transatlantic alliance" designed to pay tribute to some of his biggest influences. Tracks include "Collage (for Kurt Schwitters)", "RM (for Marcel Duchamp)", "Mobile (for Alexander Calder)", and "Stabile (for Hans Hoffmann)". CD

In The TraditionAncestral Alliances ... CD
AFJ, 2017. Used ... $14.99
Fantastic sounds from this ultra-hip Detroit ensemble – a contemporary group, but one whose musical message takes us back to the sounds of older acts like Fertile Ground or Oneness Of Juju! As with both of those groups, the style here mixes jazz with a wider sense of message and purpose – music that soars out to the skies with pride and positive energy, while also offering a deeper, more introspective conception of its role and power in culture. Tracks are instrumental and vocal – and the double-length album has nary a slow moment at all – as the group burst forth in a warm array of percussion and horns – sometimes a bit funky, always quite spiritual throughout. Olujimi Tafataona arranged, produced, and provided creative vision – and titles include his own "We Cry Freedom", "Stephen", "Brother Chokwe Lumumba", "War Is Here", "Assata", and "Fantasy For Violin & Four Winds" – plus versions of Lee Morgan's "Caramba", Jimmy Heath's "Gemini", John Coltrane's "The Sleeper", Wayne Shorter's "Footprints", and the Kool & The Gang classic "Chocolate Buttermilk".
