• Tim Daisy and Ken Vandermark

On Sunday evening at the Hungry Brain, reedist Ken Vandermark and drummer Tim Daisy conclude a two-week duo tour in support of their third album together. The Conversation (Multikulti)—an apt description of their music if there ever were one, though I bet it’s also a nod to the brilliant Francis Ford Coppola film of the same name—was recorded live at two concerts, one last year at the Velvet Lounge and the other earlier this year at Elastic. (Unsurprisingly, the album is dedicated to the memory of the Velvet’s owner and guiding force, Fred Anderson, one of Vandermark’s greatest inspirations).
