Live From New York

Booker T. Jones, Abdullah Ibrahim, Neil Cowley, Nils Petter Molvaer, Arve Henriksen & Dave Douglas

Douglas is constantly wired, pointing his horn skywards and jetting out passionately rattled phrases, as if his mission is to brim over the supreme being's spittoon. He's a master of technique, but Douglas also has a very personal message to impart. His bell-blasting sidekicks are equal to the task of matching his prowess, with even Rojas issuing several nimble huffs right down at the blubbery bowel end of the range. Bonilla and Chancey share a very similar space, so their solos complement each other admirably, with the trombonist becoming the most heated, whilst the French horner prefers to exude a buttery smoothness.
