The Dave Douglas Quintet finishes its week long run at Birdland tonight with sets at 8:30 pm and 11:00 pm, get your tickets here. The DD Quintet Album sale continues as well. Get 20% off Time Travel, Be Still and Meaning and Mystery at the Greenleaf Music Online Store. Use the coupon code “ddbirdland” at checkout!

The New York Times, The New Yorker and TimeOutNY have all offered their thoughts about this run. Here’s a recap:

Screen Shot 2014-08-23 at 4.04.14 PM Dave Douglas Quintet (Tuesday through Aug. 23) The industrious trumpeter-composer Dave Douglas broke in a terrific new band last year, releasing two albums on his own Greenleaf label: “Be Still,” a contemplative recasting of Protestant hymns, and “Time Travel,” a more rambunctious postbop outing. The quintet — with Jon Irabagon on saxophones, Matt Mitchell on piano, Linda Oh on bass and Rudy Royston on drums — will most likely draw from both releases here. At 8:30 and 11 p.m., Birdland, 315 West 44th Street, Clinton, 212-581-3080,birdlandjazz.com; $40 cover, with a $10 minimum. (Chinen)

 

Screen Shot 2014-08-23 at 4.10.09 PM

Always ready for challenging musical experiences, the trumpeter Douglas juggles bands the way others change shoes. A favorite ensemble seems to be his quintet, stocked with exciting younger players, including Jon Irabagon, on saxophones; Matt Mitchell, on piano; Linda Oh, on bass; and Rudy Royston,on drums. Douglas never panders to his audience, but this astute ensemble—which has recorded the albums “Be Still” and “Time Travel”—displays the agreeably accessible aspects of his artistry. (Birdland, 315 W. 44th St. 212-581-3080. Aug. 19-23.)

Leading trumpet progressive Dave Douglas keeps his schedule packed with collaborations and side projects—lately, he’s been working with Joe Lovano in the band Sound Prints, and in a duo with pianist Uri Caine, heard on the beautifully spare Present Joys. But he always reserves time for his working combo: These days, that’s a lithe quintet staffed with young virtuosos Jon Irabagon, Matt Mitchell, Linda Oh and Rudy Royston, all on hand for this run.
