Bill Ware's Sir Duke





Bill Ware
This groovy vibraphonist can wail with big jazz groups (including his own, Groove Collective), but he can also play crisply in a pared-down setting. Sir Duke is a collection of Ellingon duets with guitarist Marc Ribot on Knitting Factory Records.

Wayne Horvitz
Composer/keyboardist Wayne Horvitz has devoted a lot of energy to his electrified group, Zony Mash, but From a Window with his 4 + 1 Ensemble on Avant Records is more acoustic and rarified.
