If you enjoyed IMC’s previous jaunts down the jazz road less travelled, with corrosive bands like The Thing, then you are sure to find the debut Irish performance by saxophonist Ken Vandermark a satisfying night of full blooded free improv. These days, Chicago is the spiritual home of free jazz in the US, and Vandermark has made his home there since the 90’s, with his gutsy uninhibited tenor in the driving seat of bands like Territory, DKV and Vandermark 5. He’s just as frequently in Europe, fraternizing with saxophonists like Peter Brotzmann and Mats Gustafsson. He’s in good company in Dublin, with propulsive drummer Mark Sanders, previously seen above Irish ground with musicians as diverse as Jah Wobble and Charles Gayle, and bassist Olie Brice whose creative collaborations include Paul Dunmall and Louis Moholo-Moholo.
