Ein überfälliges Feature gibt es auf Bandcamp über Nate Wooley zu lesen.
Es gibt ein „kleinen“ Überblick über seine Aktivitäten. Die so zahlreich sind, das dafür den Platz nicht reicht.
Eine sehr wichtige Stimme im zeitgenössischen Jazz !
“Now that I’ve done Sound American for a while, I take pride in doing it,” he says. “We all have the opportunity to start conversations, so we all have the opportunity to put information out there and create a world in which culture and art is celebrated and debated. But it just takes a tiny bit of work—well, not a tiny bit of work, a lot of work—but anyone can do it.”
A double disc set featuring two live performances from Brooklyn’s Issue Project Room in 2010 and 2012. This continues the series of recordings released over the past five years on Important Records of Wooley’s long form electro-acoustic work and features, alongside the composer on trumpet and amplifier, such leading lights of the experimental music scene.
SSMIII was commissioned while Wooley was in residence at Issue Project Room in 2010 and portions of SSMIV were commissioned for Phillip Glass‘ birthday celebration and the Festival of New Trumpet in 2012. This is the first recording of both in their entirety, and has been released in a limited edition of 500 copies with art by C. Spencer Yeh.
Nate Wooley, C. Spencer Yeh, Ben Vida, David Grubbs, Chris Corsano, Paul Lytton, Ryan Sawyer, Chris Dingman, Matt Moran, and the TILT Brass Ensemble!
