“I felt smarter after listening to Present Joys. Along with pianist Uri Caine, [Douglas] opens a channel into the middle of his musicianship and just lets it all flow out without anything superfluous or presumptuous.”

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.”

“[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.
