I’ll be playing at a wonderful spot in Harlem this Saturday with some of my dear friends and fellow musicians. Hope you can make it!
Here’s the first official release of Sound Prints led by Joe Lovano and Dave Douglas with myself, Lawrence Fields on piano and Joey Baron on drums.
It features a two pieces composed for us by the great Wayne Shorter – “To Sail Beyond the Sunset” and “Destination Unknown.”
“The defining trait of Sound Prints,” wrote Nate Chinen in The New York Times in a 2012 review of their engagement at the Village Vanguard, “is the tangled crosstalk of its front line: an urbane, on-the-fly counterpoint brimming with crooked urgency, like a choice bit of dialogue in a David Mamet play.” Chinen added that “Mr. Lovano and Mr. Douglas are two of the leading figures in jazz, with separate histories and only a few points of past intersection… Given that Mr. Shorter is a living totem for both of these bandleaders, it made sense that they would rekindle that tribute, on their own time and in their own fashion.”
