Nate Wooley/Josh Sinton : solo-solo-duo
Thursday, Jan. 19th 8 pm
Long-time friends and frontline partners Nate Wooley and Josh Sinton meet up for an evening of singular solo performances as well as a surprising and rewarding duo.
As the two horns of the Nate Wooley Quintet, Wooley and Sinton have lots of experience melding their sounds, but tonight marks an occasion when they can do so with more space and time than they are normally afforded. Even if you heard them together in Wooley’s group, this performance will be quite different and quite special.
Nate Wooley moved to New York in 2001, and has since become one of the most in-demand trumpet players in the burgeoning Brooklyn jazz, improv, noise, and new music scenes. He has performed regularly with such icons as John Zorn, Anthony Braxton, Eliane Radigue, Ken Vandermark, Fred Frith, Evan Parker, and Yoshi Wada, as well as being a collaborator with some of the brightest lights of his generation like Chris Corsano, C. Spencer Yeh, Peter Evans, and Mary Halvorson.
Josh Sinton is a baritone saxophonist/bass clarinetist who has contributed regularly for the past ten years to the renaissance of Brooklyn-based creative activity. He has performed with Matana Roberts, Kirk Knuffke, Ingrid Laubrock, Steve Lacy, Anthony Braxton, Chad Taylor, Tomas Fujiwara and Trevor Dunn among many others.
