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

ANFTD #40: Roswell Rudd

Filed under: Dave Douglas, Podcast

Trombonist and composer Roswell Rudd has been a force in American music for over 60 years. Emerging from the brass and Dixieland bands of New England colleges in the mid-1950s, Rudd went on to New York to join fellow-seekers Steve Lacy, Herbie Nichols, Archie Shepp, Milford Graves, Cecil Taylor, Carla Bley, Charlie Haden and many others. An important aspect of Rudd’s work came about in doing research for Alan Lomax, categorizing and analyzing hundreds of hours of musical field recordings from around the globe over a span of several decades. He credits this work with deepening his understanding of musical systems, giving him the ability to travel anywhere in the world and fit into disparate musical traditions and practices.

Rudd and his partner, producer Verna Gillis, have traveled the world since 2001, producing ground-breaking collaborations with musicians from Mali, Mongolia, China and Siberia. Roswell Rudd conducts master classes and workshops, as well as continuing to perform. His most recent recording is a collaboration with the vocalist Heather Masse entitled August Love Song.

THE OLDERS, Roswell Rudd and Verna Gillis, are ready to release their new song/video AWESOME & GRUESOME.

We’d like to give a special THANK YOU to Verna Gillis for her help in creating this episode. Podcast is edited by Geoff Countryman.

ANFTD #39: Kris Davis

Pianist-composer Kris Davis has blossomed as one of the singular talents on the New York jazz scene, a deeply thoughtful, resolutely individual artist who offers “uncommon creative adventure,” according to JazzTimes. The Vancouver-born, Brooklyn-residing Davis was dubbed one of the music’s top up-and-comers in a 2012 New York Times article titled “New Pilots at the Keyboard,” with the newspaper saying: “Over the past couple years in New York, one method for deciding where to hear jazz on a given night has been to track down the pianist Kris Davis.” Reviewing one of the series of striking albums Davis has released over the past half-decade, the Chicago Sun-Times lauded the “sense of kaleidoscopic possibilities” in her playing and compositions.

Long favored by her peers and jazz fans in the know, Davis has earned high praise from no less than star pianist and MacArthur “Genius” Grant honoree Jason Moran, who included her in his Best of 2012 piece in Art Forum, writing: “A freethinking, gifted pianist on the scene, Davis lives in each note that she plays. Her range is impeccable; she tackles prepared piano, minimalism and jazz standards, all under one umbrella. I consider her an honorary descendant of Cecil Taylor and a welcome addition to the fold.”

Laurie Frink with Dizzy Gillespie

In this episode four great trumpeters: Nadje Noordhuis, Michael Rodriguez, Dave Ballou and Keyon Harrold, along with myself, discuss their experiences and practices of studying with Laurie Frink!

The discussion was recorded at the Festival of New Trumpet Music in NYC on September 25 in front of a live audience. It also includes recordings of Laurie herself playing and talking. This was a great tribute to a great teacher, but also a living demonstration that Laurie’s lessons live on with all of us!

Whether you are a trumpeter or not, there is plenty to learn from in here. It’s a pleasure to share this wisdom on the feed of A Noise From The Deep.

Thanks,
Dave
