Ken Vandermark was born across the bay from Newport, but Chicago's tight-knit and thriving progressive scene now lays claim to one of the most prolific musicians anywhere. His Powerhouse Sound band starts from funk and dub rhythms; on stage at the Newport Folk Festival in Newport, R.I., they'll be meticulously reconfigured and dished out with zealous improvisation.

Personnel: Ken Vandermark, tenor saxophone; Jeff Parker, guitar; Nate McBride, electric bass; John Herndon, drums.
