Praise for Present Joys

Present-Joys-Blog-Post

Present Joys has been out for 2 weeks and we couldn’t be more excited about the press we’ve received about this release. See highlights below and get your copy of Present Joys here.

A note from Dave Douglas:

Extraordinary for me to see all these thoughts! Much appreciated. Uri Caine and I have learned a lot touring this music. Thanks to all of you who have shared it. If you have not picked up the CD, now is a good time. And thanks for your support. We need it and appreciate it.

4 stars  “Alluring … a 2014 jazz highlight.”

John Fordham, The Guardian/UK

 

“I felt smarter after listening to Present Joys. Along with pianist Uri Caine, Douglas’ approach on this record sounds like Nas on Illmatic or the Grateful Dead at their live shows. He opens a channel into the middle of his musicianship and just lets it all flow out without anything superfluous or presumptuous.”

Alex Marianyi, NextBop

 

“While Present Joys features a stripped-down instrumentation, the utterly in-sync duo of Douglas and Caine also reaches lofty artistic heights and resonances.”

Peter Hum, Ottawa Citizen

 

4 stars … “Trumpeter Dave Douglas continues his exploration of traditional New England music with this delightful and intimate duet album, featuring pianist Uri Caine.  Though contemporary in scope, each track reflects the sparse harmonies, dignified phrasing and sense of community of a bygone era.”

Mike Hobart, Financial Times

 

8/10 … “Quite extraordinary. The folk tradition through jazz. I suppose it’s easy to embrace the tendency of adventurous musicians, of any artists with a taste for the edgy, to move back to lyricism and tradition. I’m wary of my affection for this recording and for Be Still for that reason, in the same way that I hesitate to laud Coltrane’s Ballads album. But these records are not retreats of bold playing at all — they are an expansion of a great artist’s sensibility, a way the artist has found to dare himself to focus, to refine, to move in new ways.  Dave Douglas and Uri Caine are good enough to stand up to making ‘pretty’ music, even traditional music. They pass the test and come out still surprising us.”

Will Layman popmatters.com

 

“Spiritual music, solid as Shaker furniture and often as sober as a Quaker meeting, performed by two attuned virtuosos who have worked together in various configurations for more than 20 years.   In the closing ballad ‘Zero Hour,’ Caine’s gorgeously joyous response to Douglas’s more serious reflections create[s] a brand new world in five minutes and change.”

Richard Gehr, Wonderingsound.com

NextBop

Today is release day for Greenleaf Music’s latest, Present Joys (Greenleaf Music CD-1037 and LP-1038), a duo recording by longtime friends and collaborators Dave Douglas and Uri CainePresent Joys brings Douglas and Caine together for an intimate but exploratory outing inspired by the Sacred Harp tradition. The pair take on five pieces from shape-note tunebooks as well as several new Douglas compositions undertaken in the same vein. These ten pieces engage Douglas’ trumpet and Caine’s piano in a captivating conversation full of memorable melodies and intricate digressions.

In support of Present Joys, Douglas and Caine recently completed a European tour, which you can read about here, and watch their live performance from Torino below. This weekend, Dave and Uri will be in Philadelphia and Baltimore.  For more information on these performances, click here.

Present Joys is being released on LP as well as CD and download.  We’re excited to have this fine record in our catalog. Purchase your copy here.

“An interesting format to hear jazz musicians perform in. Exposed, risky and with the potential to go in any number of directions.”

London Jazz News

 

“[A] beautiful new album of duets.”
Richard Scheinin

The Sacred Harp, Ye Olde New-England Psalm-Tunes, The Southern Harmony and Musical Companion: these ancient “tunebooks” form the basic repertoire for countless musical groups that keep the tradition of “shape-note” singing alive. Longtime friends and collaborators, trumpeter Dave Douglas and pianist Uri Caine, reunite as a duo on this recording, exploring these 18th and 19th century American songs and their influence on jazz and popular music.
