about

"A quartet, driven by experimental curiosity, that has taken a somewhat different path toward jazz and it’s possibilities. Four clarinets/bass clarinets with an undogmatic approach and a very orderly world of sound. On “Curiosity” they set off a musical firework that is colourful, spectacular, and completely new. The incredibly layered and unbelievably varied sound combined with a high level of musical finesse makes all of the difference here." (austrian music export)

"It’s as delightful as watching shadows and sunlight dance upon a wood floor. The clarinets and bass clarinets of the Wood Black 4 can sure deliver a pretty melody, but the joy is listening to them under construction. The rhythm as the shaping force is nifty as hell, but the aftereffects drifting down as lovely harmonies is what clinches the album’s success. Oscar Antoli, Stephan Dickbauer, Daniel Moser and Leonhard Skorupa crafted an album that possesses the solemn tones for early mornings and the liveliness for a late-night listen."

about

Woody Black 4 Vienna, Austria

Woody Black 4 is all but a standard jazz band. One bass-clarinet sounds warm, but it can sound quirky and aggressive as well. Whereas four bass-clarinets, pure, without any accompaniment, open up these characteristics into unprecedented spheres. This Vienna based quartet of black woods unfolds an exuberant playfulness, sounding out any stylistic and tonal options of such minimalist cast. ... more
