Riverside, a group inspired by the music of clarinetist Jimmy Giuffre and co-lead by trumpeter Dave Douglas and saxophonist Chet Doxas, will appear twice in Alberta in November. The quartet aims to show their appreciation and respect for the late reedsman and composer, but rather than being just a tribute band and simply performing Giuffre’s repertoire, Douglas and Doxas have composed new music that highlights their inspiration. The piano-less configuration allows for harmonic freedom and gives the group the ability to emphasize the original compositions as well. The band will feature Dave Douglas on trumpet, Chet Doxas on saxophone, Jim Doxas on drums & Joe Grass on pedal steel and guitar. We hope to see you there! See below for details.
