Ken Vandermark
Site Specific

"Site Specific is a neat entry in the Ken Vandermark oeuvre: a minimalistic, beautifully bound book packed with two CDs capturing live solo field performances in '14 and '15, showcasing Vandermark's photographs taken as he has toured the world. Time and place take a back seat to imagery, textures and emerging themes."
-Paul Acquaro, The Free Jazz Collective
