Dave Douglas - UPLIFT

Part of EFG London Jazz Festival

Get lifted in this jazz concert led by fearless trumpeter and composer Dave Douglas and friends.

Playing with a stylistic breadth that roams far and wide in the language of today’s jazz, Douglas is joined by a host of talented musicians in this concert: Bill Laswell (bass guitar), Mary Halvorson (guitar), Rafiq Bhatia (guitar), Jon Irabagon (saxophone), and Ches Smith (percussion).

Douglas’ most recent project, UPLIFT, brings together a typically fascinating band of like-minded spirits, including bassist and producer Bill Laswell – famed as producer of Herbie Hancock’s seminal Future Shock album – and one of today’s most original guitar voices, Mary Halvorson.

The music reflects Douglas’ commitment to positive action: 12 tracks are released monthly, and each one is devoted to a major issue of concern for this world and its people.
