Documentary
The second documentary in Daniel Kraus's "Work Series" (the first was Sheriff), this video paints a vibrant but decidedly unglamorous portrait of Chicago saxophonist Ken Vandermark. There are no interviews, but Kraus captures Vandermark rehearsing, composing in his basement, performing in six different ensembles, and taking care of business (booking tours, ordering posters, paying fellow musicians). The end result is a strange duality between work and play: Vandermark loves what he does, but because resources for the improvising musician are so limited, he can never rest.
