(Thin Wrist) Used LP $8.00

This trumpeter living in Mexico City focuses on sound as it relates to specific spaces and in turn the subtle but profound connections they have to emotions and the body. On the surface, Wick’s side-long improvisations 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.
