Dave Douglas' Keystone - Live at the Jazz Standard

Two-time Grammy-nominated trumpeter Dave Douglas is arguably the most original trumpeter/composer of his generation. From his New York base, where he has lived since the mid 1980s, he has earned lavish national and international critical acclaim, including trumpeter, composer, and jazz "Artist of the Year" by such organizations as the New York Jazz Awards, Down Beat, Jazz Times, Jazziz, and the Italian Jazz Critics' Society. His solo recording career began in 1993 with Parallel World on the Soul Note label and he has since released twenty-two CDs. In 2005, after seven critically-acclaimed albums for the Bluebird/RCA label, he launched his own label, Greenleaf Music. He was also honored with a Guggenheim Fellowship that same year. His current release, Meaning and Mystery (April 11), features his working quintet of Uri Caine, James Genus, Clarence Penn and Donny McCaslin.Besides his leading his own groups, Douglas has an important ongoing musical relationship as a member of John Zorn's Masada and with artists such as Myra Melford, Anthony Braxton, Don Byron, Joe Lovano, Uri Caine, Cibo Matto, Sean Lennon, Fred Hersch, Mark Dresser, Han Bennink, Misha Mengelberg, and Patricia Barber. For his composition, Douglas has received fellowships for his work from the Guggenheim Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts, Meet the Composer, the Mary Flagler Cary Charitable Trust, Arts International, the Vooruit Culture Center, Extension Ensemble and the Library of Congress.

His latest project imagines a new soundtrack to the silent films of Roscoe (Fatty) Arbuckle, via an instrumental cohort of saxophone, electric keyboards, turntables, bass and drums. As Mr. Douglas and his ensemble demonstrate on a recent live recording, “Moonshine” (Greenleaf), there’s nothing musty or particularly comic about their methods.

My name is Jim and I work for Dave Douglas at his record label. First, we do want to thank you for spreading the word about this release. We appreciate the kind words about the project.

Greenleaf Music is an independent record label--all the money goes directly to the artist or is reinvested in worthwhile projects. We aren't trying to bust you, but we would appreciate it if you would take away the option to download.

This project--while not free--is being sold at a steal of a price ($7 per set, or $50 for all 8 nights). We also offer it in FLAC format for a little extra.

We hope you understand our concern about giving away the music based on how it affects an artist-driven company like ours. And again, many thanks for the free publicity.

I do understand your point.... but that is a novelty way to promote artists on a blog.... instead of pirating an official release and post it on a blog like 100s of blogger do, I post a good show.... spread the music, give links to buy music. remember the blog is about live music .. so without the download part.. smuggled sound is no more waht it is. Can I possibly be Granted special permision??? or would you allowed me to keep the post til the end of the month and then I will remove it....

WOW! I had the web sheriff contact me about a Van Morrison boot of his BBC show recently, really nice about it too. But had my links deleted and asked me to withhold even "older" boots for now. VM BBC show can't even be heard here in the States, and it went out over the airwaves FREE! Unreal. Awesome show too.

Keep up the GREAT work! UR Blog is awesome. (Princess digs it too, gives ya a paw-up!)
