Ken Vandermark
Momentum 1: Stone

"A quick glance at the musicians [Vandermark] gathered should alert anyone familiar with his work that a summation of the sorts was in the offering... From Vandermark's myriad articulations and miniscule hairpin dynamic changes to some of Joe Morris' best and most varied guitar work on disc and given the varying and wonderfully diverse electronics and turntablism presented by Ikue Mori and Marina Rosenfeld, there is simply not a dull moment in any of the sets... Never has [The Stone] sounded bigger, either in person or on headphones."
-Marc Medwin, The New York City Jazz Record. November 2017
