Tim Daisy / Ken Vandermark / Michael Thieke- Triptych (RELAY RECORDINGS 2017)

Triptych documents a first time meeting between three stalwarts from the international improvised music scene: Berlin-based clarinetist and composer Michael Thieke, Multi-reedist extraordinaire Ken Vandermark, and Chicago-based drummer and composer Tim Daisy. These three compositions and five improvisations document multiple approaches to the art of composition and improvisation utilizing an unconventional trio line-up of clarinet, bass clarinet, tenor saxophone, and percussion.
