In my estimation, Daniel Van Duerm is one of the most exciting young improvisers in Chicago these days. A keyboard player who creates sonic environments rather comps and who has, in just a few short years carved out a unique and personal style, a sound language I haven’t heard before.

Anti-Glow shows off Van Duerm's particular concept in a context considerably different than ones we’ve heard him in before. Daniel's take on the music - “This performance was during a time of tremendous self doubt...these feelings are often times not articulated in my personal words adequately. To me though, they’re an incredible source of creative energy when harnessed. Examples of my most sincere emotional expression come from exploring these dark hallways inside myself.”

That’s not to say the music is emotionally one dimensional. Darkness and light exist together just like in the rest of our lives. Here in sound, the darkness as well as the light can illuminate. Glow and Anti-Glow. Adams' elastic drumming along with Andrade's responsive yet introspective horn make for a rewarding listening experience. I’m genuinely excited to hear what Van Duerm comes up with next."
