Doug Wieselman (USA)

 

Touring solo for the first time ever in Europe, longstanding vital force of New York's jazz scene supports the re-release of his genius 'From Water' album out on Shazad Ismaily's figureight (TBA) in 2018.

Doug has fulfilled reed duties many times the world over, arguably most notably with Loud Reed, Tricky, ANHONI, his wife Laurie Anderson, and extensively with CocoRosie.

His live show consists of recreations of the album tracks using refined effects to create ebbing reconstructions of these pieces for performance.

As a reed player for an impressive variety of ensembles and touring bands, Doug has lent his artistic vision to multiple touring shows and as collaborator on recordings, throughout his career.

The wholly fascinating solo clarinet album collects compositions of melodies and themes he has heard at various locations throughout his life, and that have recurred, on repeat visits like echoes of his own mind, coming back to him time and time again. He eventually commit these to be recorded, and later arranged into full compositions.
