MUSICIAN Born:

Nate Wooley

Nate Wooley (b. 1974) grew up in a Finnish-American fishing village in Oregon. He has spent the rest of his life trying musically to find a way back to the peace and quiet of that time by whole-heartedly embracing the space between complete absorption in sound and relative absence of the same. He began playing trumpet professionally at age 13 with his father, and after studying he moved to Colorado where he studied more with Ron Miles, Art Lande, Fred Hess, and improvisation master Jack Wright. His tenure with Jack began to break Nate out of self-imposed molds and into the sound world that he has embraced as his own. Nate currently resides in Jersey City, NJ and performs solo trumpet improvisations as well as with his trio Blue Collar with Steve Swell and Tatsuya Nakatani

Matthew Shipp - Nate Wooley: What If?

Read "What If?" reviewed by John Sharpe

What If? presents pianist Matthew Shipp and trumpeter Nate Wooley in their first appearance as a duo.

From Wolves to Whales: Strandwal

Read "Strandwal" reviewed by Giuseppe Segala

Il quartetto From Wolves to Whales, nome azzeccato per un significativo incontro di quattro personalità al vertice del jazz e dell'improvvisazione contemporanea, si era già proposto nel 2015 con il CD omonimo, dopo il rodaggio di tre concerti a Manhattan e a Brooklyn nel febbraio del 2014. Il sodalizio, imperniato sulla lunga frequentazione di Nate Wooley ...

Read "Kirk Knuffke, Charles Lloyd, FIDOqrtet and More" reviewed by Maurice Hogue

This episode has several excellent contemporary trumpet/cornet/flugelhorn players scattered throughout the playlist: players like Brian Groder (new recording Luminous Arcs ), Dan Rosenboom, Kirk Knuffke, Nate Wooley (with Harris Eisenstadt), Ron Horton and Rob Mazurek (Chicago Underground Quartet). Those horns are staples of big bands too, so you'll hear plenty in the music from Sweden's Maluba ...

Chris Pitsiokos: Speak In Tongues And Hope For The Gift Of Interpretation

Read "Speak In Tongues And Hope For The Gift Of Interpretation" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Saxophonist Chris Pitsiokos, it might be said, was standing on the shoulders of giants when he recorded this solo alto saxophone concert in January of 2019. Indeed, these six tributes take into account the accomplishments of the esteemed masters and, from their shoulders, Pitsiokos enters some rarefied air. His Speak In Tongues And Hope For The ...

Harris Eisenstadt Canada Day: Quartet Live

Read "Quartet Live" reviewed by Stefano Merighi

Il talento percussivo ma ancor più compositivo di Harris Eisenstadt viene confermato da questa incisione dal vivo, che la formazione modulare Canada Day—qui ridotta a quartetto—ha realizzato ad Avignone nel marzo 2018 durante un fortunato tour europeo. Anche se Eisenstadt ha approfondito tradizioni percussive sia africane che centroamericane, la sua musica non sfrutta ...
