The first two nights of recording at Jazz Standard have been unbelievable. Great sold out crowds (even on a rainy Thursday night!) and powerful playing by the Quintet. Get your tickets now, as the last 2 nights of the run are likely to sell out.
You can pre-order the recordings below. Pick a single night, or the entire run! The music will be available to download on Tuesday, November 24th for all preorders and our Level 3 subscribers.

Hope all is well. This is about a special new project we are introducing. I love my current Quintet 2015, with Jon Irabagon, Matt Mitchell, Linda Oh, Rudy Royston. Many of you have heard us recently.
I have decided to record the entire run at Jazz Standard (more info and tickets here) from November 19 to 22 and make ALL 8 SETS available to listeners on Tuesday, November 24. You can get really cool advance pricing by ordering now.
All downloads will be high quality, and DRM free, to own and enjoy at your leisure. They will come with cover art and information.
I believe this band is in the midst of an important and revolutionary run — playing four albums worth of material from memory — and artistically I need to document it. And I urge you join us and drop into the club for a listen.
Thanks for your support.

Thanks to the Hartford Courant for the coverage! The Dave Douglas Quintet will be at the Side Door in Old Lyme on Friday, Nov. 13. Get your tickets here!
Trumpeter Dave Douglas, when he’s on stage with his longtime quintet, sometimes finds himself taking part in a swirl of frenetic energy, a peak moment in a longer improvisation, when the band transcends itself and its surroundings.
Writing music for “Brazen Heart,” his latest quintet recording, Douglas wondered: How can I capture that spark in a three-minute composition? Can lightning, in fact, be bottled?
“So often, when the band gets to that kind of energy, it’s in the middle of a 15-minute piece,” Douglas says. “As a composer, I was like, OK, how can I get us to that place, and get in and say it and get out?”
Several songs on “Brazen Heart” — “Wake Up Claire,” “Inure Phase,” “Ocean Spray,” “Lone Wolf” — embody that strategy. Douglas’ quintet performs some of that music, and more, at the Side Door in Old Lyme on Friday, Nov. 13. (read more at The Hartford Courant)
Greenleaf artist Matt Ulery collaborates with longtime bandmates Zach Brock (violin) and Jon Deitmyer (drums) to create the trio Triptych. They’ll debut a fresh set of music for their fall midwestern tour. Check out the trio on Matt Ulery’s Greenleaf release In the Ivory below.
