✨✧ Dave DouglasTime Travel ... CD
Greenleaf, 2013. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the best albums we've heard in years from trumpeter Dave Douglas – a really in the pocket session that's filled with rhythmic intensity, and some of the boldest music we've heard from Dave in years! There's plenty of edges to the set – especially the trumpet of Douglas and tenor of Jon Irabgon – but there's also a groove to many numbers too – a kind of forward-rolling energy that really takes the whole thing to great points throughout the set, and which makes a great progression from the somber tone of Dave's last album – almost a musical rebirth of sorts! Crack rhythms flow from the trio of Matt Mitchell on piano, Linda Oh on bass, and Rudy Royston on drums – and titles include "Time Travel", "Beware Of Doug", "Little Feet", "Garden State", and "Bridge To Nowhere".

✨✧ Dave Douglas & High RiskDark Territory ... CD
Greenleaf, 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Great work from Dave Douglas and his High Risk quartet – a group who definitely step into dark territory here, in a heady blend of electric elements and Dave's bold frontline work on trumpet! The group electric bass, electric drums, and more electronics – plus some acoustic drums – yet somehow manage to come across with a very organic vibe, and one that's quite different than you might expect – especially in comparison to other trumpet-led projects like this, which often have the leader processed and filtered into the mix. Instead, Dave's sound is as rich and warm as ever – never a slave to the backings, and instead right out front ahead of them – blowing with lines that arc and turn beautifully, and remind us what a personal, poetic soloist Douglas can be. Titles include "Celine", "Ridge Hill", "Mission Acropolis", "All The Pretty Horsepower", and "Loom Large". CD

✨✧ Rudy RoystonRise Of Origin ... CD
Greenleaf, 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Rudy Royston's fast becoming a player to watch – a hell of a drummer when he works in other people's groups, and a growing leader with a bold, fresh vision in jazz! This set's a killer – a non-stop flurry of fantastic, inventive sounds from a trio headed by Royston on drums, with Yasushi Nakamura on bass and the great Jon Irabagon on saxes – really taking advantage of the open space of the record to blow with the brilliance he brings to his best music! There's almost a vibe here that reminds us of the important Sonny Rollins trio sides of the late 50s – but the whole thing is even more freewheeling, with more of a sense of on-the-fly creation – as just the right sounds seem to spin effortlessly from all players involved. Titles include "Rise Of Orion", "Alnitak", "River Styls", "Kolbe War", "Nautical", "Sister Mother Clara", "Dido's Lament", "Make A Smile For Me", and "Man O To". CD

✨✧ Dave DouglasHigh Risk ... CD
Greenleaf, 2015. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Dave Douglas is a man of many colors – all of them great, and painted with the rich hues we've come to expect from his work on trumpet! This time around, Dave's got a group with a fair bit of electric elements – so much so, that the few acoustic elements come from Douglas' work on trumpet, and some bass and drums. All other elements are improvised and electronic – which makes for a very unusual setting for Dave's trumpet – one that's still quite jazz-based, but which often draws a lot from the strong interplay between the horn and the backdrops – a bit like older work by musicians like Jon Hassell or Tomasz Stanko, but far more focused and expressive than either of them. Where others might use the setting to slide into too-mellow, too-sloppy styles, Dave seems to get even sharper than usual – and really wows us with his interaction with the group! Titles include "Cardinals", "Tied Together", "High Risk", "First Things First", and "Molten Sunset". CD

✨✧ Dave Douglas/Monash Art EnsembleFabliaux ... CD
Greenleaf, 2015. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Trumpeter Dave Douglas works here with a special group of musicians from Monash University in Australia – a larger array of reed, brass, and string players who really let Dave's music take off in rich new dimensions! The sound of the tunes is still very Douglas-like, but the execution is very special to this session – as four reed players, two trumpet players, a trombonist, four string players, and percussion and electronics expand out the sound in these really great ways – with some especially great moments from Fender Rhodes, electronics, and pitched percussion – which all add in the sorts of tones we might not expect on a record from Dave. The music gets somewhat "out" at points, but always retains that tonal brilliance that Douglas has given us right from the start – and finds a path back to clear colors that resonate strongly long after the record is over. Titles include "Gears", "Forbidden Flags", "Wagon Wheel", "Tower Of The Winds", "Legions", and "Frieze". CD

✨✧ Ryan Keberle & CatharsisAzul Infinito ... CD
Greenleaf, 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great group with a really unique vibe – a sound that's much warmer and more captivating than you'd guess from the "catharsis" in their name – as trombonist Ryan Keberle blends together elements of jazz, Latin, and Brazilian music, with some especially haunting wordless vocals from singer Camila Meza! Meza's very much her own artist – and works here with a mode that is more instrumental than lyrical – singing with these great tones that create a sense of flow and glow in the music – never gimmicky, and never in some of the more forced ways that singers might have used the approach in the 70s. Meza sings lyrics at a few points, but what we really love are these wordless lines – blended in alongside the trumpet of Mike Rodriguez, drums of Eric Doob, and beautifully warm basslines of Jorge Roeder. Titles include "La Ley Primeira", "Cancione Mandela", "Quintessence", "Mr Azul", "She Sleeps Alone", "Madalena", and "I Thought I Knew". CD
