There are few musicians who have created such a distinct approach and style as Nate Wooley. A peerless trumpet player, his music is starkly different, as difficult to stomach as it can be spiritually tantalizing. Each new project is an event in the community of Creative Musicians, and his latest is no different. Amassing a who’s who of original-voiced musicians – Susan Alcorn, Mary Halvorson, Ryan Sawyer – his Columbia Icefield comes complete with a theme from which to compose, improvise, and completely turn the audience inside out.
The incomparable, internationally-acclaimed cellist Janel Leppin opens.
