It was fantastic.  They were all phenomenal.  I could watch any of them all day long.  It was phenomenal.

Dave Douglas Quintet: 50th Birthday Week

Trumpeter, bandleader, entrepreneur, educator: Dave Douglas’ unique contributions to improvised music have garnered distinguished recognition from many quarters, including a Guggenheim Fellowship, Aaron Copland award and Grammy Award nominations. This week, Dave rolls into Jazz Standard for a very special 50thbirthday celebration with the artist leading his stellar quintet in performances of songs from his forthcoming album, Time Travel. It’s the follow-up to the critically acclaimed Be Still, which the Los Angeles Times called “a lush collection of hymnals and elegies reworked into widescreen jazz.” Time Travel, Douglas explains, “features the same lineup (minus guitarist Aoife O’Donovan) for a straight–up instrumental batch of tunes. Can’t wait for you all to hear it!”
