Bow River Falls

I’ve gotta say, Dave’s acoustic piano announcement today threw me for a loop. As I’m usually pretty up-to-date with the DD news, reading it on the blog before I knew anything about it has me even more excited than usual. Very much looking forward to that.

Looking back… err, forward — we just posted a new title at our store. Bow River Falls was Dave’s first post-RCA release. Released by our buddy Mike at Premonition Records in 2004, this record finds Dave working with Louis Sclavis, Peggy Lee, and Dylan van der Schyff. The music was recorded at Banff in a single afternoon during the International Workshop for Jazz and Creative Music. This was a group effort all the way with each member bringing in compositions and arrangements (Blinks by Steve Lacy opens the record — listen on our sidebar player).

All the audio is streamable at the album page at our store. Have a listen. Stellar record. Glad to have it in stock.

  1. I love this cd. I was lucky enough to be in Banff when it got recorded and it was incredible to watch it unfold. I saw the first rehearsals and then sat in the booth during the recording session…amazing.

    One of my favorite tracks is Retracing by Peggy Lee. Check out the counterpoint and how the melody flips the beat around….
