Current 23 documents such a journey for Tim Daisy and Fred Lonberg-Holm, who have been making music together for over 20 years. Each has a hazy memory of becoming aware of the other in the late 90s or early 2000s in Chicago, which was a fertile time in that city’s creative music history. They worked loosely together in one-off projects and more closely in groups led by saxophonist and composer Ken Vandermark, recording and touring extensively throughout Europe and North America with Vandermark 5 and The Frame Quartet. Working in such close proximity — literally, if we think of cramped tour vans — they developed the type of rapport that only comes through time and the belief that the journey is as important as the destination. Saxophonist Dave Rempis, a fellow collaborator with Daisy and Lonberg-Holm in countless groups, puts it well: “They are the consummate Yin Yang pairing. Tim provides a rock-solid foundation while Fred probes and pokes everything he encounters, asking the unasked. The two of them as a pair are unstoppable.”
