Nate Wooley's knknighgh

Friday, February 9th | 8pm | $15

Nate Wooley - trumpet
Chris Pitsiokos - alto saxophone
Brandon Lopez - bass
Dre Hocevar - drums

Nate Wooley’s solo playing has often been cited as being a part of an international revolution in improvised trumpet. In the past three years, Wooley has been gathering international acclaim for his idiosyncratic trumpet language. Time Out New York has called him “an iconoclastic trumpeter”, and Downbeat’s Jazz Musician of the Year, Dave Douglas has said, “Nate Wooley is one of the most interesting and unusual trumpet players living today, and that is without hyperbole”.

Now he brings his new quartet, knknighgh (pronounced knife), to the Sugar Maple on February 9th. The band is a radical take on the classic free jazz quartet tradition. Inspired by the minimalist poems of Aram Saroyan, Wooley wrote only one short and fragmented composition for this group, which consists of three of the most interesting upcoming musicians in New York today: Chris Pitsiokos on alto saxophone, Brandon Lopez on bass, and Dre Hocevar on drums.

The group worked tirelessly on pushing the simple 13 bar theme to its limits. Wooley wrote short fragmentary loop compositions that could be triggered by a simple auditory cue by anyone in the band, making this a form of composition by committee. The group finds new configurations of the almost non-existent material that give a fresh perspective on the free jazz aesthetic while forcing the players out of their comfort zones and into pure creative energy.

On this February tour (which includes a concert on February 10th in Chicago as part of the "Keep Your Options Open II" fundraiser for the Option series at Experimental Sound Studio), the group grapples with Wooley’s Brecht Series, which takes the musical ideas of their first recording into a deeper abstraction that is no less communal, but produces a music involved with yes and no, foreground and background, and the meaning of jazz history.
