Dave Douglas Quintet plays at Cornish College.

Dave Douglas Quintet  performed Saturday night at Poncho Hall in a fantastic set. At the end the Westerlies joined them for a couple of numbers.

Time Travel (2013) and Be Still (2012) show prolific NYC trumpeter, composer and educator Dave Douglas’ new ensemble – Jon Irabagon (tenor saxophone), Bobby Avey (piano), Linda Oh (bass) and Rudy Royston (drums) – to be transporting, lyrical and hard-swinging. Douglas’ unique contributions to improvised music have garnered distinguished recognition, including a Guggenheim Fellowship, an Aaron Copland Award and two Grammy nominations. Since 2005, Douglas has operated record label Greenleaf Music. Douglas has held several posts as an educator, notably, as Artistic Director the Banff Centre in Canada (2002-2012). He is a co-founder and director of the Festival of New Trumpet Music. In 2013, he begins his second year as International Jazz Artist in Residence at the Royal Academy of Music in London.
