T.ON feat. Nate Wooley
The New York trumpeter Nate Wooley is considered one of the most advanced representatives of his instrument. His performances are outstanding and mindblowing. Wooley is considered one of the leaders of the American movement to redefine the physical limits of the horn and has gained international recognition for his idiosyncratic trumpet language.
Wooley moved to New York in 2001 and has since become one of the most sought-after trumpeters in the burgeoning Brooklyn jazz, improv, noise and new music scene. He has performed regularly with John Zorn, Anthony Braxton, Eliane Radigue, Annea Lockwood, Ken Vandermark, Evan Parker, and Yoshi Wada. He has premiered works for trumpet by Christian Wolff, Michael Pisaro, Annea Lockwood, Ash Fure, Wadada Leo Smith, Sarah Hennies and Eva-Maria Houben.
The recordings for the new IMPAKT Records release of the Cologne trio T.ON with Wooley are currently in progress. (First collaborations already took place between Muche and Wooley in his spectacular SEVEN STOREY MOUNTAIN project at the Moers Festival and L'ARME! Festival Berlin).
The quartet is an extremely intense and dynamic combination of players whose goal is to create visionary, controversial and adventurous music.
As protagonists of the "Cologne Sound", Muche/Nillesen/Herzog are among the most active international players on the scene. They also play with Elisabeth Coudoux's - emissatett and genre terms are stretched by them with relish.
With the current CD - T.ON - Plays Matthias Muche, T.ON convinces with a broad spectrum of sound, from intimate simplicity to large soundscapes.
Felix Klopotek (Stadtrevue 11/2020) writes about it: "The improvisational music of Matthias Muche (trombone), Constantin Herzog (double bass) and Etienne Nillesen (prepared, "extended" snare drum) is based on guidelines, structural ideas, rules. They originate from Matthias Muche, hence the album title, and are entirely at the service of the cause: to play homogeneous, compact, very dense, yet audible and clear music. There is no question of individual handwriting here. The three pieces unfold gravitationally, nothing sounds despondent, nothing falls apart, no strained call-and-response playing - the musicians act as a unit right from the start, rely on the fusion of sounds and dynamics - and do so at a high level of intensity throughout. This makes the music rousing and immediately comprehensible, but just not predictable..."
2021 Matthias Muche wins the WDR JAZZ Prize in the IMPROVISATION category. T.ON plays the award ceremony in the WDR Sendesaal Cologne as a digital audio-visual concert:
movement that redefines the physical boundaries of the horn, and has gained international acclaim for his idiosyncratic trumpet language.
