Dave Douglas Sextet
The Festival Of New Trumpet Music has been taking place this week, giving some shine to visionary veterans and rising talents alike. One of our most intrepid brass players, and the guy who gave the Fest its start, brings his latest group to the stage in a show that helps celebrate his 50th birthday. From Protestant hymns to churning freebop to a new commission entitled “Pathways” (inspired by in a Bach chorale) Douglas’s ensemble is sure illustrate the breadth that has been central to the trumpeter-composer’s work.
