4/6 Ab Baars Trio & Ken Vandermark free tonight @Yoshis

Posted by novoscene on April 6, 2009

Straight from the horse’s mouth.  Or the horse’s website.  Not that we’re calling the folks at Yoshi’s in Oakland horses mind you…

Over the years, Ken Vandermark and Ab Baars often met ‚ they only ever once played together. On November 14th, 1999, they performed at the Empty Bottle in Chicago. “Like a longstanding duo we worked ourselves through the set, almost inadvertently confronting the forces of drummers Han Bennink and Hamid Drake. A sweeping night!”

It was about time to invite Ken as a guest to the Ab Baars Trio. He will carry a bit of Chicago with him: the legendary jazz tradition of that city, mingled with European influences that have come to affect his music in recent years.

And the Ab Baars Trio? After seventeen years it sounds more vital, more idiosyncratic, more poetic and exciting than ever, with Ab Baars (tenor saxophone and clarinet), Martin van Duynhoven (drums) and Wilbert de Joode (bass).

Dutch musician-composer and bandleader Ab Baars performs on tenor saxophone, clarinet and shakuhachi. He focuses mainly on the Ab Baars Trio, Duo Baars-Henneman and the ICP Orchestra.
