A series of EP albums titled Narratives by Willie Oteri's Dark Matter Horns will be the first officially released recordings to focus on Oteri's tenor sax and flute work. He is joined here by long time friend Dave Laczko on trumpet and veteran Austin drummer Steve Mankenberg. Recorded live in studio using only 4 tracks during the winter of 2018. This is totally improvised music that will appeal to fans of Free Jazz, Avant Garde and Experimental styles as well as to fans of more melodic jazz offerings.
Oteri has several guitar based albums to his namewith some very fine musicians including, Scott Amendola, Giko Pavan, Tony Levin, J.A. Deane and others, 1999s Jazz Gunn Concepts of MateMaToot featured A-Team players Brannen Temple, Michael Malone, Chris Maresh, and second guitarist Chris Tondre, the uniquely original 2003 release Spiral Out produced by Ronan Chris Murphy which featured prog rockers Tony Levin, Pat Mastelotto and Mike Keneally in a free improvised jazz setting with trumpet master Ephraim Owens, two critically acclaimed Avant-Garde WD-41 albums followed with electric trumpet player Dave Laczko, the second incorporating the talents of Dino J.A. Deane with drummer Scott Amendola and Shrunken Head Shop taken from a series of live recordings from a tour through Germany.
Always driven to reinvent and create, Oteri is now focusing on sax and flute after putting these instruments on the back burner for many years.
