Hailing down from the NYC area, American jazz trumpeter and composer, Dave Douglas’ unique repertoire and style speaks for itself. Since 1993, Douglas has recorded more than forty albums as a bandleader. With his own groups, Douglas has pioneered new settings for the trumpet in jazz. He has produced and recorded countless artists and groups, including all albums released by his independent label Greenleaf Music. Douglas has performed and recorded with dozens of musicians in jazz and has been a member of the SFJAZZ Collective and various John Zorn ensembles. In more recent years, he has explored collaborations involving modern dance, spoken word/poetry, and film. Douglas served as the artistic director of the Banff Workshop in Jazz and Creative Music from 2002 - 2012 and is the co-founder of the Festival of New Trumpet Music, a non-profit charity that supports new and pioneering trumpet workshops across genres, genders and communities and is held annually in New York City. The highly anticipated quintet made their debut in 2012, and critic’s are proclaiming “Douglas' Quintet reflects the independent spirit of a pioneering artist whose intrepid enthusiasm manifests itself in his choice of gifted young collaborators…” and the performance “displays the boundless creativity of a group that derives equal inspiration from both past and future.”
