Release group by The Vandermark 5. Overview.

The song 'New Acrylic' by The Vandermark 5 has a tempo of 100 beats per minute (BPM) on 'Beat Reader'.

Saxophonist, composer, bandleader, and all-around musical maverick Ken Vandermark charges through eight tracks of bracing beauty on 2008's BEAT READER. Leading a dynamic ensemble that once again includes engineer and sound wizard Bob Weston, Vandermark and company take no prisoners on the driving "New Acrylic," try cool, off-kilter swing on "Further From the Truth," explore clattering improvisation on "Compass Shatters Magnet," and apply fragile brushstrokes on "Any Given Number

Beat Reader is the tenth studio album of all-original material from Chicago's esteemed Vandermark 5. Leading his most resilient and diverse ensemble into its second decade, umentalist Ken Vandermark has accomplished a remarkable achievement in a time when regular touring line-ups have vanished. Soloing with maniacal intensity, "New Acrylic" and "Desireless" reveal the dizzying, kaleidoscopic sound worlds a virtuoso cellist with a distortion pedal and a wah-wah can conjure. Vandermark has dropped the tenor saxophone from his arsenal in this line-up, settling on baritone and an assortment of clarinets, and leaving saxophonist Dave Rempis to handle the middle range.

The Vandermark 5 was formed during the spring of 1996. Since that time it has been a major outlet for the compositional and improvisational ideas of Ken Vandermark, whose thinking has been developed through years of work with groups like the NRG Ensemble, AALY, the Peter Brötzmann Chicago Tentet, the Free Music Ensemble, School Days, Free Fall, and the Territory Band.
