Dave Douglas at the North Sea Jazz Festival 2007.

Source: jazz.org, Douglas and friends will be performing this piece on March 3rd and 4th.

Trumpeter Dave Douglas is a prolific composer and a powerful performer of improvised music. His output as a bandleader is one of the most eclectic in history, featuring dozens of groups on over 50 unique recordings. Metamorphosis marks a bold new conceptual approach to organizing music for improvisers and features an all-star gallery of legendary voices. For this special engagement, Douglas has enlisted some of the most influential modern improvisers, many of them Douglas’ own heroes: trumpeter Wadada Leo Smith, saxophonist Oliver Lake, drummer Andrew Cyrille, guitarist Marc Ribot, pianist Myra Melford, bassist Mark Dresser, and percussionist Susie Ibarra.
