Album Description

Beginning with Dave Douglas' contributions to John Zorn's Masada, through his seminal albums of the '90s, Israeli saxophonist Alon Farber has been deeply inspired by the beauty and uniqueness of the trumpeter's expansive sonic output. Hoping to someday find the opportunity to cross musical paths, that day came in the summer of 2023 as Douglas joined Farber's accomplished group, Hagiga (meaning, appropriately, “celebration”), at the Jerusalem Jazz Festival. Providing the band with great inspiration, Alon dubbed Douglas "the magician," as he lifted the ensemble with his presence, his tunes offering stimulating landscapes for them to explore, while Hagiga's iridescent chemistry delivered their own magic. "...a powerful, serious album..." - Distrito Jazz (Spain)
