Stream Nate Wooley tracks

March 2012

Listen to a collection of music compiled and annotated by the American trumpet player. Wooley is featured in an article by Dan Warburton in The Wire 338.

Paul Lytton and Nate Wooley
"Live at University of Oregon"

This is from a 2009 US tour of my long standing duo with legendary percussionist, Paul Lytton. The concert took place as part of the University of Oregon's Soundbytes series, which is a programmed season of strictly 11 minute afternoon concerts that take place on campus.

Nate Wooley and Beta Collide
"Three Cello Studies"
Recorded by Lance Miller

In 2010 a number of composers were commissioned to write electroacoustic works based on the of Bach, for the Oregon Bach Festival ReMix night. This composition features Molly Barth on piccolo, Brian McWhorter on piccolo trumpet and Michael Ward-Bergeman on accordion and the first three chords of the first three Bach Cello Suites.

Paul Lytton, C. Spencer Yeh, Okkyung Lee and Nate Wooley

This is a bonus track from a forthcoming LP on Bill Kouligas's Pan label. It's from a live concert at New York's Roulette concert series and is the first meeting of the quartet.

Nate Wooley
"Greatest Hits"

This is from a Desert Island Discs kind of thing. All the participants submitted a playlist, and for some reason I thought it would be more interesting to make it into a tape collage.

Fred Lonberg-Holm, Jason Roebke and Nate Wooley
"Sit In The Throne"

This is by the trio that recorded our Throw Down Your Hammer And Sing album. It's a track from the second album which has languished unreleased. It's one of my all time favorite groups due to the sheer rawness of the music and our absolute inability to deal with anything approaching standard form.

Nate Wooley
"Live at WFMU"

2009 live amplified performance at the home town radio station in Jersey City.
