Paul Lytton / Nate Wooley: Known/Unknown

Read "Known/Unknown" reviewed by Mark Corroto

The duo of Paul Lytton and Nate Wooley invites the listener to accompany them down the proverbial rabbit hole, entering a land similar to Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. Like Alice's trip through the looking glass, reality (conventional music making) is subverted to produce a disorienting situation. Known/Unknown is the third release from the duo, ...

Free improvisations with titles like “Rage for Speaking" and “A Sick Man's Dreams" indicated a different view of the agreed-upon definition. And so, it has been and has evolved, over nearly twenty-five years ...

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
