Nate Wooley Interview

From The Rumpus.net:

In Episode 15 of Make/Work, host Scott Pinkmountain speaks with trumpet player/composer Nate Wooley. Wooley’s playing has been widely praised by everyone from the New York Times and DownBeat to trumpet icon Dave Douglas who called him “one of the most interesting and unusual trumpet players living today.” He’s constantly performing and recording internationally with such folks as John Zorn, Thurston Moore, and pretty much everyone playing contemporary free jazz and improvised music.
