Chris Forsyth & Nate Wooley
"In recent years, guitarist Chris Forsyth has come on like the redeemer of classic rock. His work with the Solar Motel Band extends the improvisational fire and frankly ecstatic thrust of rock virtuosos like Tom Verlaine and Richard Thompson within sturdy riff structures that Led Zeppelin fans could appreciate without putting on their thinking caps. Trumpeter Nate Wooley’s recent output encompasses bruising free jazz with the trio Icepick, minimalist drones on his solo record The Almond and more elegantly arranged ensemble work with his Sextet. But put the two of them together and you can forget about all of that stuff. Genre references and personal styles fall away, since they’re essentially inadequate answers to the fundamental question at hand — what do we play?
