Ken Vandermark / Paal Nilssen-Love Duo
The Lions Have Eaten One of the Guards

"They’ve tapped into a sound that is eminently listenable and addictive, and it’s exciting to hear them hone their interplay more and more as time passes. I would highly recommend this album to fans of Ken Vandermark’s and Paal Nilssen-Love’s previous duo work, and to any fan of powerful, melodic, but still adventurous music."
-Derek Stone, The Free Jazz Colective
