Ken Vandermark and Nate Wooley are offering the rare opportunity to enjoy a performance in a unique, intimate setting The Alternate Space. The event, sponsored by Seven Cycles, brings improvised jazz music into a bicycling manufacturing environment where creativity, motion and hard work happen. The musicians will play together to create an organic combination of jazz tradition, free improvisation, and modern composition.  The energy these two world renowned improvisers bring to this special space is sure to spark some new sounds and collaborations.

Ken Vandermark, a Massachusetts native, will be coming home for this special, one-time gig. A fixture on the Chicago-area music scene since 1989, Vandermark has earned wide critical praise for his playing and his multilayered compositions, which typically balance intricate orchestration with passionate improvisation. He has led or been a member of many groups, collaborated extensively with other artists, and was awarded a 1999 MacArthur Fellowship. He plays tenor saxophone, clarinet, bass clarinet, and baritone saxophone.

Nate Wooley's solo playing has often been cited as being a part of an international revolution in improvised trumpet. In the past three years, Wooley has been gathering international acclaim for his idiosyncratic trumpet language.  Time Out New York has called him “an iconoclastic trumpeter”, and Downbeat’s Jazz Musician of the Year, Dave Douglas has said, “Nate Wooley is one of the most interesting and unusual trumpet players living today, and that is without hyperbole”.
