Paul Lytton – drums

Ken Vandermark - saxophones, clarinets

Nate Wooley - trumpet

The ensemble Lytton/Vandermark/Wooley brings together the heroes of three generations of jazz artists in an exclusive action – exactly ten years since they released the only joint recording of the trio from the Chicago Hideout club on the album The Nows.

Drummer Paul Lytton (1947) is one of the founders of the British jazz avant-garde. He revolutionized the treatment of drums, treating them as a set of objects for creating a specific atmosphere, as opposed to the traditional role of setting and preserving the rhythm. He recorded over a hundred albums, mostly collaborating with Evan Parker, Barry Guy and The London Jazz Composers' Orchestra. He also made his own instruments, such as the lyttonophone, and was one of the pioneers in live electronics.

Multi-instrumentalist Ken Vandermark (1964), the winner of the MacArthur Foundation "Genius Grant" at just thirty-five, showed his talents in jazz, improv, noise and rock, collaborating with the most significant figures of the avant-garde on both sides of the Atlantic. He recorded over two hundred albums as a leader/co-leader (Vandermark 5, DKV Trio, Made to Break, Sonore, The Resonance Ensemble...) or sideman and played an important role in shaping the contemporary Chicago jazz scene.  

Trumpeter Nate Wooley (1974) has been living in New York since 2001 – he is one of the leaders of Brooklyn jazz, improv and noise, an improviser of fascinating technique, and a successful leader of several ensembles. Among the jazz legends he collaborated with are John Zorn, Anthony Braxton, Evan Parker, Wadada Leo Smith and Joe Morris. He has recorded almost a hundred albums, is the editor of the Sound American online magazine and the founder of Pleasure of the Text Records.
