For the second time in three years, Nate has been named one of NYC Jazz Records musicians of the year. He was also named musician of the year by El Intruso Jazz in their 2013 International Critics Poll!

NW5's (Sit In) The Throne of Friendship was represented as one of the best jazz records of the year in a number of polls and sat at number 2 amongst all records for the Chicago Reader! Seven Storey Mountain III/IV also placed as one of the records of the year in El Intruso.

2013 was a crazy busy year, and there's more to come in 2014 with a new book of music for the quintet (on tour in Europe, see the live page for dates!), a new solo project for trumpet and electronics dedicated to Kenneth Gaburo at the Experimental Media Performing Arts Center, and music for two new groups: Battle Pieces with Sylvie Courvoisier, Ingrid Laubrock, and Matt Moran (premiering at Anthony Braxton's 2014 Tri-centric Festival) and the double trio Argonautica featuring Ron Miles, Cory Smythe, Jozef Dumoulin, Rudy Royston, and Gerald Cleaver at Roulette.
