Offenburg 2014 [no label, 2CD]

Live at the 29th Jazzdor Festival, Reithalle, Offenburg, Germany; November 14, 2014. Very good satellite broadcast.

For almost 20 years, trumpeter Dave Douglas and saxophonist Joe Lovano have been prime moving forces in the jazz scene, their paths crossing often on stage and occasionally on record. Douglas appears on Lovano’s 2001 Blue Note album Flights Of Fancy: Trio Fascination Edition Two and they overlapped as members of the SFJAZZ Collective for three seasons during which the band performed the repertoire of Thelonious Monk, McCoy Tyner, and their mutual touchstone: saxophonist and composer Wayne Shorter.

The latter part of 2014 saw Douglas and Lovano launching a 22-date tour across the United States and Europe with their co-led quintet Sound Prints featuring pianist Lawrence Fields, bassist Linda Oh and drummer Joey Baron. Sound Prints take their inspiration from the music of Shorter - the band’s name is a nod to his classic “Footprints” - however, the quintet’s focus is on new original compositions by Lovano and Douglas, as well as new Shorter compositions in direct collaboration with Shorter himself. The band is fueled by a desire to push the boundaries of their music as far as they can stretch, similar to the expansive role Shorter has played in jazz since his debut with Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers in 1959.

  2. I saw Linda Oh headline last summer - blew me away. I’ve also enjoyed the others a number of times, so I’m looking forward to this. Thanks for continually mixing it up, Big O!
