sample the album:
"The debut LP by Jacob Wick. A trumpeter and improviser living in Mexico City, over the last 10 years Wick has become known for deconstructing the instrument itself and any expectations of how it 'should' be played. These explorations focus on sound as it relates to specific spaces and in turn the subtle but profound connections they have to emotions and the body. The result is a highly personal music that is both unique and immediate, abstract yet undeniably visceral.
On feel Wick creates two intense side-long improvisations. On the surface they appear to be works of rigorous minimalism; on closer listen they reveal sounds that slowly but constantly shift and evolve. Texture and plosives replace melody and rhythm. Body and breath become indistinguishable from the instrument, the moment is stretched and expanded. Each sound is so closely linked that the player and listener are drawn completely into the present. feel is an uncompromising and entirely original album- an intimate sound experience that rewards anyone that chooses to enter."-Thin Wrist
