Grammy-winning saxophonist and composer Joe Lovano and two-time Grammy nominated trumpeter Dave Douglas are current masters on their respective instruments within the pantheon of modern jazz. From their collaborations on acclaimed recordings such as Trio Fascination: Edition Two and more recently John Zorn's Stolas, Lovano and Douglas have shown that their distinct and robust voices can lead, blend and push the idiom forward both in composition and improvisation, while embracing the front-line masters of previous generations. In 2008, when Lovano and Douglas were co-leaders of the renowned SFJAZZ Collective, the group paid tribute to living icon Wayne Shorter, showcasing arrangements of Shorter originals alongside newly composed pieces influenced by Shorter's compositional voice. This experience was a catalyst that led the two instrumentalists to conceive the Joe Lovano & Dave Douglas Quintet: Sound Prints, an all-star ensemble including emerging pianist Lawrence Fields, bassist Linda Oh, and drummer Joey Baron. Performing new repertoire as well as brand new Shorter compositions in direct collaboration with Shorter, the quintet is less an homage to Wayne Shorter and more of a unique convergence of three unparalleled trajectories.
This new superstar ensemble unites the master saxophonist and revered trumpeter with serious firepower for an evening of limitless musical potential. This night will inspire!
