The self-described “confrontational” trumpet player is adept at an avant lingo that offers strength in splatters and titillation in textures. But for this book of more overtly jazz pieces inspired by female family members who had a hand in his upbringing, Wooley becomes a bit less wooly and heads towards Dolphyville, specifically Out To Lunch and its vibes, bass clarinet, drums, bass, and brass mélange. He and his brood know how to give a hot foot to almost any passage. Be on the lookout for mucho dynamic sweep.
