"The intergenerational trio was brought together at the Blow Out festival in Oslo in 2018, where they generated a lot of excitement. Norwegian music journalist Johan Hauknes wrote: "This was not your average impro-set, this was fresh, new, exciting and riveting!""
Sten Sandell / David Stackenäs / Evan Parker / Barry Guy / Paul Lytton
""Gubbröra" (34 minutes ..) belongs to the complete quintet. The authority of Parker, Guy and Lytton enriches the vocabulary of the group and melts a magma of music whose rivulets run parallel, alternating quiet and fury." - All About Jazz Staff, Italy"

"Given the unorthodox instrumentation, there's a little more than meets the eyes and ears on this quartet effort recorded at a jazz festival in Ljubljana, Slovenia. -Glenn Astarita, All About Jazz"
Live in Ljubliana
Trumpets and Drums
"Trumpet and drums, or more exactly: two trumpets and two drumsets. The trumpeters, Nate Wooley and Peter Evans, are used to playing together, but it’s a first finding such different drummers (one a natural born rhythmicist, the other an architect of textures) as Jim Black and Paul Lytton playing together. Wooley has a duo with Lytton, and Evans worked with the two men holding the sticks. So, don’t think there’s a double duet acting here, or that previous Wooley / Evans or Wooley / Lytton experiences give a base of security to the events heard. As the wild card of the quartet, Black would easily (just by being himself) cut off all attempts to go to chartered terrain, but truth is he doesn’t need to: veteran improviser Lytton and the two younger horn players are known, precisely, for their ability to contradict themselves and to perform the unexpected. So, “Trumpet and Drums” isn’t the kind of summit you normally get when the same instruments are on stage. There’s no battle of skills, even if they’re well evident. That’s something else what conducts this meeting of giants: to find what the mirrors don’t show. And the four musicians do find what they search for, and so can you."
"“Featuring” is a release of “Puzzlemusik” label. Album was recorded by five jazz stars – it’s Phil Vachsman (violin, live electronics), Paul Lytton (drums, percussion, live electronics, home-made instruments), Sten Sandell (piano), Floros Floridis (clarinet, bass clarinet) and Nate Wooley (trumpet).

X PACT II
"This freight train phrase describes an object of study that’s been woefully under-attended relative to its counterparts in London, Amsterdam, and New York. In the late 1970s and early 1980s, across Germany, especially in the north, with outposts in smaller cities like Witten, Wuppertal, Leverkusen, Wiesbaden, and Aachen, musicians gathered as workshops, cooperatives, and collectives, presenting themselves in festivals, projects, or “meetings,” following the example set out by Jost Gebers and Peter Brötzmann’s Berlin-centered first wave free music organization, Free Music Production (FMP), away from which these regionally diffuse platforms pushed. The scenes cross-pollenated, germinated, grew into their own particular musical ecosystems. Some amalgamations were fleeting; others were longer lasting. A few jelled into bona fide bands."
