Event Details

The fearless trumpeter and composer plays with a stylistic breadth that roams far and wide through the language of today’s jazz. His most recent project brings together a typically fascinating band of like-minded spirits, including bassist and producer Bill Laswell – famed as producer of Herbie Hancock’s seminal Future Shock album – and one of today’s most original guitar voices, Mary Halvorson. The music can be heard via Greenleaf Music and reflects Douglas’ commitment to positive action – twelve tracks being released monthly, each one devoted to a major issue of concern for this world and its people.

‘All hands on deck. It’s imperative that all of us, together, work for positive change in this challenging moment – UPLIFT began as a reminder – to myself – to stay positive, stay active, and stay engaged. I hope this message reaches others through this music.’ (Dave Douglas)
