Dre Hočevar Quartet Feat. Joe Morris, Pascal Niggenkemper & Nate Wooley at 56. Ljubljana Jazz Festival at Cankarjev Dom
Dre Hočevar, drums, composition; Joe Morris, guitar; Pascal Niggenkemper, double bass; Nate Wooley, trumpet
Along with Kaja Draksler, Dre Dre Hočevar is arguably in the pole position for a worldwide career. Not only because if his young age but mostly because of his musical maturity and knowledge about what it takes to reach that position in a good way.
Studying with true masters, and not with the most popular names, looking for knowledge in the right way that’s not always the easiest one, Dre is living in New York where he's learning about what's there to get and what it takes to get it. Taking one look at this band, it’s easy to see how much sense this makes after the release of his amazing trio CD, Coding of Evidentiality, where he places himself at the frontline of new jazz or whatever you want to call it. Having companions such as Pascal Niggenkemper, Nate Wooley and Joe Morris is a statement far from any comfort zone, it’s about taking risks and exploring individual speech as equal among equals.
