"Wooley is a trumpeter forever interested in texture and contrast, as an instrumental strategy as well as a conceptual ploy ... (taps) into the frontier energies of early jazz-rock."
- The New York Times

"Four Stars ... (Ron) Miles' contemplative style and Wooley's somewhat more forceful method mesh beautifully ... Argonautica is saturated in a variety of atmospheres, sometimes in a haze, other times with the intensity of a storm. Whether melodic or noisy, there is a coherent momentum that binds the freest improvisations to lyrical passages, eschewing prescribed limitations of composition and the conventional boundaries of instruments ... yet another ambitious and beautifully realized work from Wooley, who just keeps moving the needle forward with every project."
- All About Jazz

Argonautica from trumpeter Nate Wooley is a single, 40 minute long piece that combines aleatoric and minimalist compositional aesthetics and forces them through the prism of early fusion. Designed as a tribute to Wooley’s early trumpet hero Ron Miles, Argonautica is performed by a double trio with Wooley and Miles on trumpets, new music firebrand Cory Smythe and avant-electro keyboard whiz Jozef Dumoulin on pianos and Rudy Royston and Devin Gray on drums. The compositions, written especially for this project, set up swirling asymmetrical soundspaces that give flexibility to the musical personalities of each member of the band. It is an organism, moving in part or together, sometimes in two directions at once but always with purpose.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
