Trumpet and Drums: Evans, Wooley, Black, Lytton
2011

Project
Trumpet and Drums is a modern creative - free improvisation ensemble, with Peter Evans and Nate Wooley on trumpet, and Jim Black and Paul Lytton on drums.

This surprising project was born when the Ljubljana Jazz Festival invited Peter Evans and Nate Wooley, two of the most brilliant trumpet players of their generation, to bring up a band to play at the festival's 2012 programme. They called their drum mates on their own projects (Jim Black plays on Peter Evans quintet Ghosts CD and Paul Lytton has had a duo with Nate Wooley for several years resulting in their critically acclaimed recording Creak Above 33 and the forthcoming duo CD with Ken Vandermark and Ikue Mori as guests) and this unorthodox quartet arises as one of the most expected concerts of the whole programme.

A quartet, but one consisting of two trumpet players and two drummers. And spectacular musicians at that. All four members of Trumpet and Drums are on a mission in search of the limitations of their instrument. The project started out with Peter Evans and Nate Wooley, who released High Society in 2011. On the album they made use of heavy amplifiers and distortion equipment for the sound of their trumpets. The two drummers Jim Black and Paul Lytton enjoy experimenting equally as much. The young Black enjoys drumming a Balkan beat or rock throb, and even digital soundscapes on his laptop. Lytton has been at the vanguard of drum improv for over 40 years. The four artists know each other from many collaborative and bilateral projects. During their experimental sessions, they are able to bring their four highly individual voices together as a quartet.
