Ke-nekt’ Series: Trumpeter Dave Douglas @ Sheldon Hall Ballroom

Dave Douglas

Ke-nekt’ Chamber Music Series: Trumpeter Dave Douglas
Host: Eric Schmitz | Pre-concert Talk: 7:00 PM

Dave Douglas arguably is the most original trumpeter/composer of his generation. Douglas’ stylistic
range is broad yet unaffected; his music is not a pastiche, but rather reflects a personal aesthetic of a wide variety of interests. He explicitly cites such diverse influences as Igor Stravinsky, Stevie Wonder, and John Coltrane.

As a composer, Douglas adapts and synthesizes unusual forms and creates his own out of
disparate elements. As a trumpeter, he possesses a comprehensive jazz technique; certainly one hears the ghost of Lester Bowie in Douglas’ expressive manipulations of timbre and pitch, but more pronounced is the integration of distinctive compositional and improvisational conceptions that ultimately defines his work.
