Ken Vandermark is a Chicago based musician and organizer. He helped found Catalytic Sound, and they recently started their own streaming service. Jeff and Ken talk about that…and other stuff.

Tonight I went to hear my fist live performance since March. It was at The Broadside, which is a great outdoor venue in New Orleans. The chairs are well spaced, the people all wear masks, the sound is good. There is food and drinks. Plus there is a cool view of downtown from the right seats. It was nice to hear music with people and not feel like I was being pandemic irresponsible.
Helen, Will, and Doug sounded great, and it was great to see and hear my friends. I will be playing there next Wednesday with a new band that will be lots of fun. Tickets here.
My practice has been to list only listening that is new to me here, and technically this is not music that is new to me. It is music that has been recently re-released, so it gets a pass. One should never let one’s rules get in the way of good music, or sharing of such music.
