Haunting and Inspired

paanders

An all-star affair that delivers coherence above showboating. The musicians are phenomenal and they pledge allegiance to the minor key tango-flavored original dirges and dances. Perfect accompaniment for raking leaves alone on a fall night as the temperature and the sun both drop. Summer is gone and a long winter ensues. Let the beauty fall down...

Interview: Dave Douglas

By Britt Robson, Contributor

The career of jazz composer and trumpeter Dave Douglas has been prolific and intrepid, brimming with brash experiments and interdisciplinary artistic collaborations. Born in 1963, Douglas has, for the past 30 years, written and played original music incorporating everything from Eastern European folk to avant-garde jazz to rock-ish electronica, all injected with the spontaneous improvisation and top-notch scholarship that are the yin and yang of jazz. Along the way, he has worked in the realms… more »

The Compleat Uri Caine

By Kevin Whitehead, Contributor

Uri Caine personifies the postmodern musical impulse; he's recorded straight-ahead and not so straightahead jazz, funk, klezmer, Brazilian pop, turn-of-20th-century Tin Pan Alley songs and breathtakingly novel and diverse arrangements of 18th and 19th Century classics. Depending on the setting, he'll play grand piano, electric piano, their ancestor the pianoforte (as when wittily improvising on Beethoven's Diabelli Variations), harpsichord, organ, synthesizers - pretty much anything involving black and white keys. Most anyone else trying all… more »

They Say All Music Guide

Trumpeter Dave Douglas has participated in so many styles of music that listing them all would be mesmerizing. Some of his best work has been performed in free style and hard bop jazz groups. Here, he charts a different path, albeit one that he has pursued successfully before, in a mellow, lovely vein. Douglas is the only horn, backed by Guy Klucevsek’s eclectic accordion, Mark Feldman’s gloriously sweet violin, and Greg Cohen’s acoustic string bass. With some exceptions, the dynamics are generally low, the tempos slow, and the mood serene. There is almost a post-minimalism to it all, capped by the exquisite sound of Douglas’ trumpet. Often, the tunes (mostly written by Douglas) have an Eastern European flair, at times hinting at Klezmer or Jewish wedding music. The group’s exacting technical skills eclipse limitations and transcend the immediate moment with gorgeous sound and forward-looking harmonies. – Steve Loewy
