A Discontinuous Line
"The Vandermark 5 deliver on the epic promise of 2005's The Color Of Memory with what may well be their most ambitious compositional effort thus far. A Discontinuous Line presents a remarkable range of dynamic musical ideas and influences processed, as Vandermark fully leverages the vast experience & deep well of talent assembled in The V5's third lineup in their decade-plus existence. Call it what you will... post-bop, avant-garde, neu chamber music, free jazz -- it just doesn't matter any more. What DOES matter is the monolithic edifice that has been so meticulously assembled by America's finest working jazz ensemble: an authenticity of materials, an integrity of concepts, the will to improve -- and the courage to change. Ten years of piledriving musical endeavor has resulted in perhaps The V5's most complex and engaging studio album yet."
