Event Details

Trumpet player Nate Wooley is being hailed for his daring innovative spirit. ‘Wooley continues to push the limit of the trumpet as a sound generator’ (The Wire).

This year saw the release of no less than two Nate Wooley albums, Seven Storey Mountain V and Argonautica. The first album is strongly influenced by the adventurers among the American composers and writers of the 20th century, the second by the pioneers of jazz rock. His own quintet also sheds new light on American history, in particular the development of bop and jazz from the 1960s to 80s. In this context Wooley dares to experiment and push the boundaries of his trumpet playing.

Nate Wooley is considered a contemporary innovator of the trumpet, an adventurous musician fascinated by jazz as well as radical improvisation and avant-garde composition. He became a professional player at 13 and in 2001 he moved from Oregon to New York. As one of the most outstanding trumpet players of the adventurous Brooklyn scene he regularly performed with icons such as John Zorn, Anthony Braxton and Fred Frith.
