HTrio and Nate Wooley
Fuse Art Space is excited to host New York trumpeter Nate Wooley performing alongside Manchester-based HTrio, consisting of improvising musicians Andrew Cheetham (drums), Mark Hanslip (saxophone) and Otto Willberg (bass), on their upcoming UK tour.
Nate Wooley is one of the rising stars of the American experimental scene, a trumpet virtuoso whose musical explorations have taken him through ecstatic jazz, free improvisation, drone composition, and noise into a place very much his own, characterised by intense dynamics, an acute awareness of space, and a complex and organic sense of structure. Recent collaborators include Mary Halvorson, John Zorn, Chris Corsano, Akron/Family, Peter Evans, Wolf Eyes, Joe Morris and Evan Parker.
Comprising three improvisers with contrasting backgrounds in jazz, modern classical music, and rock, HTrio are known for their strong, unified group sound honed through hours of jamming at their studio in Manchester’s Northern Quarter. Together they create long-form improvised pieces that range from abstracted sounds to high-energy free jazz, whilst retaining a strong sense of melody and structure.
