Trumpet player Nate Wooley began performing professionally with his father, a big band saxophone player, at age 13 in his hometown of Clatskanie, Oregon. He moved to New York in 2001 and has since honed his horn chops with John Zorn and Anthony Braxton, among others.

These days, Wooley's even got his own band -- the Nate Wooley Quintet -- in which he plays trumpet alongside Josh Sinton on bass clarinet and bari sax, Matt Moran on vibraphone, Eivind Opsvik on bass, Dan Peck on tuba and Harris Eisenstadt on drums.

The Nate Wooley Quintet performs at the Brooklyn Lyceum in Gowanus on Wednesday night. "Ethyl" is from the quintet's debut album, Nate Wooley Quintet: (Put Your) Hands Together, which was released this year on Clean Feed Records.
