"The evolution of Ken Vandermark continues with his new quartet Made To Break, an electric/acoustic ensemble that bridges his musical strengths of composition, organization, and improvisation. Founded in 2011, the saxophonist drew together bassist Devin Hoff (The Resonance Ensemble), drummer Timothy Daisy (Vandermark 5, The Frame Quartet, Sound In Action Trio, Bridge 61), and a new contributor, Christof Kurzmann (electronics). In the early 2000s, Vandermark's interest in non-jazz elements like funk and reggae developed with his Spaceways Inc. trio and electronics with Frame Quartet and Powerhouse Sound, the latter featuring Scandinavian noise artist Lasse Marhaug. His improvising, both solo and in duo (with Daisy) also became an important path for him. As he retired, these young projects (including the most successful V5), the seeds for Made To Break were planted." --Mark Corroto, All About Jazz. Recorded and mastered at Amann Studios, Vienna 2013. Ken Vandermark (reeds); Christof Kurzmann (lloopp); Devin Hoff (bass); Tim Daisy (drums).
