Bandcamp is donating their profits from today’s sales to the Transgender Law Center in support of transgender rights. Here’s their mission statement:

Transgender Law Center works to change law, policy, and attitudes so that all people can live safely, authentically, and free from discrimination regardless of their gender identity or expression. We envision a future where gender self-determination and authentic expression are seen as basic rights and matters of common human dignity.

We stand with Bandcamp and the many labels and artists who are supporting the Transgender Law Center. We are donating 100% of the proceeds from today’s Bandcamp sales to this worthy cause.

The New Yorker and New York Times Preview High Risk at Roulette!

Posted by: mark on May 6, 2016 @ 11:04 pm
Filed under: Dave Douglas, Events, High Risk, Press

Saturday’s Dave Douglas High Risk show at Roulette is the New York debut for this electronic-inspired group. So it is fitting that both the New Yorker and New York Times published gig previews:


This ravenously adventurous trumpeter and composer is no stranger to electronica. With High Risk, alongside the drummer Mark Guiliana, the bassist Jonathan Maron, and the beats master Shigeto, Douglas fearlessly follows his muse farther down the rabbit hole, to a place where jazz improvisation collides with contemporary sonics.”
-Steve Futterman, The New Yorker


Mr. Douglas, the trumpeter and composer, renewed his smartly probing engagement with electronic music on “High Risk,” an album featuring Shigeto, a beat-minded producer, along with Jonathan Maron on electric bass and Mark Guiliana on drums. The same coalition just released an engaging sequel, “Dark Territory,” and will perform at Roulette, expanding on its designs with spontaneous interplay.”
-Nate Chinen, The New York Times

Details about the Roulette show can be found here.

Dear Friends,Digital Cover Square

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.


Here are the details:

11/19 – Jazz Standard, New York, NY – Buy Tickets [LIVE Recording]
