Panel discussion led by Dave Douglas with Charles Tolliver (FONT Award Winner), Keyon Harrold (The Mugician), and Meghan Stabile (Revive Music). Held during the 15th Festival of New Trumpet Music. Topics include Charles’s founding and maintaining of the record label Strata East in the early 1970s, his interactions with Blue Note, as well as new paths in self determination for creative artists then and now. Keyon and Meghan speak powerfully on redefining current music and empowering oneself to take ownership of its presentation. Thanks FONT Music for sponsoring this event. See a photo of Charles’s award at the website.
Perseus. In which Dave gets to play with four of his heroes. Wadada Leo Smith, Oliver Lake, Fred Frith and Andrew Cyrille. What a dream come true. I’m humbled by these great improvisers—the dynamics in action here are astounding. I loved especially playing with fellow trumpeter Wadada on this session, the call and response both challenging and energizing. Coming around to Perseus (after starting in on Andromeda) feels like a call back to that earlier piece. This is the second to last piece in the series. Thanks for listening. And if you are just joining us, enjoy the whole suite! This content is for members only.

“Dave Douglas doesn’t pass the torch to The Westerlies. They both already possess the same flame … All the proof you need is Douglas’s songs, the Westerlies’s musicianship, and Anwar Marshall’s unwavering percussive anchor … ‘Colonial Cubism’ does the trick there, finding all six musicians in the driver’s seat.”
– John Garrett, Pop Matters
“Little Giant Still Life (Greenleaf Music), is the work of an inquisitive, ambitious artist who draws inspiration from numerous sources.”
– Downbeat News Feature
“The musicians tender a mesmeric sequence of musical events … the radiant themes with Douglas’ sinuous arrangements yield gratifying results … there are an abundance of crests and sinuously executed passages on this album as the ensemble operates in perpetual motion while reengineering primary motifs along the way.”
– Glenn Astarita, All About Jazz
“Dave Douglas … is the ideal person to collaborate with The Westerlies, a new-breed brass quartet. Their new album, Little Giant Still Life, … also features drummer Anwar Marshall, who knows how to bring muscle to a groove without a heavy trudge.
This being a Dave Douglas project, there’s also a source of outside inspiration: the work of Stuart Davis, a defining American modernist whose paintings have more than a passing relationship to jazz. The album is named after a 1950 painting whose defining feature is the word ‘CHAMPION,’ bisected with diagonal lines but as legible and graphic as a logo. Douglas seems to be thinking in that mode too: the pace here is triumphant, and the harmonies (the low rumble of those perfect parallels!) convey a determined gravitas.”
– Nate Chinen, Take Five piece on WBGO.org
“Little Giant Still Life contains [Douglas’] impressions of 12 Stuart Davis artworks, refracted into intricate scores for The Westerlies, a pan-stylistic bass ensemble that plays with ‘intense precision’ and the erudite 22-year Philadelphia drummer Anwar Masrshall.”
– Ted Panken, JAZZIZ feature, October 2017
