Metamorphosis | Orion

Posted by: russell on September 2, 2017 @ 2:01 pm
Filed under: Dave Douglas, Subscriber Downloads

Oliver Lake, Wadada Leo Smith, Kris Davis, Yasushi Nakamura. Harmonic interplay between the voices, with deep call and response. This is a real four way dialogue in a way only these four could conjure. A tour de force of form and structure created in the moment. I can hear the shapes as each of them pick their way through the collective and individualized consideration of tone and melody.

The earliest depiction linked to the Orion constellation is a carving in mammoth ivory that was made between 32,000 and 38,000 years ago. The Hunter. Orion boasts that he will kill every animal on the planet. Gaia, mother of all life, angrily sends a scorpion to dispatch Orion. Stung, Orion is revived with an antidote from Ophiucus.

ANFTD #45: Dave Douglas on WKCR 3 of 3

Posted by: russell on @ 9:55 am
Filed under: Dave Douglas, Podcast

May 24, 2017 Dave was invited as a guest on the WKCR Musician Show with host Matt Landes. It was a three hour broadcast, which A Noise From The Deep is splitting into three episodes of approximately one hour each. Dave’s approach for the show was to play music by trumpeters he admires that you may not have heard of. Episode Three opens with Carla Bley’s King Korn from the album The New National Anthem, and continues with music from Stephanie Richards, Leron Thomas, Allison Philips, Josh Evans, Ingrid Jensen, and Ibrahim Maalouf. Closes with a brand new Steve Swallow piece. This is a recording of a live show, so even though a call in number is given out, your calls to WKCR during this podcast may not reach a live person. Many thanks to WKCR, Columbia University Radio. wkcr.org
