New York improvising artists trumpeter Jacob Wick and percussionist Andrew Greenwald in 4 tracks of minimally dense and persuasively smeary compositions.

"Player and composer Jacob Wick is making his presence known in the international jazz and creative music scene. He has been playing and studying jazz and improvised music since he was 10 and has performed in numerous venues, including a 3-week tour of europe in 1999; the Aberdeen (Scotland) International Youth Festival in 2001,; and the Banff (Canada) International Workshop in jazz and creative music in 2004 and 2005, to which he was personally invited by Dave Douglas. He has studied with Jon Faddis, Dave Douglas, Rudresh Mahanthappa, Vijay Iyer, and Misha Mengelberg, and has performed with Han Bennink, Gerald Cleaver, members of the Count Basie Orchestra rhythm section, and Mark Turner, among others. In 2005, his band THROE was invited to play at the FONT festival of new trumpet music, curated by Dave Douglas; and in 2006, a project he is part of with two irish musicians called White Rocket toured Ireland to rave review. More recently, a sound installation which Jacob designed and built, called "Mistletoe," went on display at the rough:space gallery of the DANK museum (Chicago, IL). Jacob is currently on the staff of the dance conservatory at Purchase College, SUNY, where he accompanies Neil Greenberg's advanced improvisation class. He currently resides in Astoria, New York.

Andrew Greenwald produces work which satisfies his fascination with the extremes of duration, density, texture, and their collective absence. This approach to composition and improvisation has established him as sought-after musician throughout the new music communities of the U.S. and Europe. He seeks to distill his instrument to its barest essentials-metal, wood, and plastic. Viewing the respective properties through this lens unearths a sound both transparent and immediate, blurring the line between convention and abstraction. The intent: to arrive at a sonic space where the multiplicity of this acoustic instrument yields a singularity- sound indistinguishable of its mean parts, and unified in its aural purpose/intention. He holds a degree in music from New York University (2003, Cum Laude). Residencies include The Banff Centre for Jazz and Contemporary music (2002, 2004), Western Front (2004, Vancouver BC), Harold Arts (2007), and Pamplemousse Seedlot (2006, 2007). His work has been featured at such festivals as the Vancouver Jazz Festival, Nhebraska noise fest, Western Front, Festival of New Trumpet Music, and Sound Bubbles. Performance activities include work as soloist with TACTUS and Ensemble Pamplemousse. He has lectured at such institutions as Manhattan School of Music and The Banff Centre."-Creative Sources
