Press Roundup for Dark Territory

Filed under: Dave Douglas, Releases

DarkTerritory_LP_CoverArt_LoRes

Dark Territory, the new album by Dave Douglas & High Risk, has been receiving some great press. As the band begins their European tour today, check out these quotes on the record.

NYTimes

“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,” … expanding on its designs with spontaneous interplay.”
Nate Chinen, The New York Times

NewYorker

“…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

Billboard

“Prolific jazz trumpeter Dave Douglas has always been an experimentalist—he’s collaborated with everyone from the Trisha Brown Dance Company to Tom Waits—but his most recent project, High Risk, might just be his most eclectic yet.”
Billboard

logo

“By trade, Dave Douglas is a trumpeter, composer, and fearless explorer of jazz and other types of music that can be both composed and improvised (they often lie somewhere in between).  The group’s individual talents allow the band to put itself in ‘high risk’ situations that ultimately pay dividends in equally high rewards.”
EARMILK

AllAboutJazz

“Dave Douglas’s second release with his electronic group ‘High Risk’ is true to form of the trumpeter’s modus operandi to avoid repeating the same thing twice. From art-noise to spastic dub tempos curious themes run the gamut with each track presenting something unique.”
AllAboutJazz.com

WBGO_logo

“His volume of output and clarity of vision is highly impressive.”
Simon Rentner, WBGO

irish-times

“Dave Douglas and his ‘High Risk’ quartet are doing is what jazz musicians do best: taking the sounds and influences around them, personalising them, adapting them and moulding them into an expressive language.”
The Irish Times

stereophile_logo

“Dark Territory is a terrific album—dark, moody, virtuosic in a manner both combustible and streamlined.”
Stereophile

The album is available via Bandcamp, iTunes and Amazon.

The High Risk European tour takes place July 20-29. Details here.
