Woody Black 4 are following a rather unusual musical path. The instrumentation, with four clarinets, is already out of the ordinary. Woody Black 4 is a quartet that — driven by experimental curiosity — likes to take a refreshingly undogmatic approach to instrumental lineups. As a result, the band has followed a decidedly unique path towards jazz, offering a completely new acoustic experience. Entitled “Curiosity”, their most recent album sets off fireworks in the brightest colors. The quartet stands out from the rest because of its musical finesse as well as its incredibly layered and unusually varied sound.

For their accomplishments, band members Oscar Antoli, Daniel Moser, Stephan Dickbauer, and Leonhard Skorupa have garnered first prize at both the European Jazz Contest and the Made in New York Jazz Competition. Woody Black 4 succeded at Europes most important Shwocasefestivals such as jazzahead! and the int. Jazzfestival Saalfelden. In 2018 Woody Black 4 were selected to play at inJazz Rotterdam.
