KenVandermark & PaalNilssen-Love —
Screen Off ... CD PNL (Norway), 2019. New Copy ...
The title here might seem a bit unusual, but it's a reference to Youtube, which is the source of all the material used on the album – about a decade's worth of performances by KenVandermark and PaalNilssen-Love – captured by fans, cleaned up by the pair, and lined up here as a fantastic live document of their longstanding sympathies for each other as improvising musicians!Ken is often at his most sonically intense – blowing a variety of reed instruments with plenty of full-on force to match the always-driving percussion of PaalNilssen-Love – who's clearly hitting a lot of those powerhouse moments the fans love to capture so much. All tracks are improvised, captured from live recordings around the world – and the set features 21 selections in all! CD
