Dave Douglas & Keystone: Live at Jazz Standard

Read "Live at Jazz Standard" reviewed by Ted Gordon

In 1961, Bob Thiele set up a portable reel-to-reel tape recorder at the Village Vanguard to record John Coltrane's quintet. Though there was no official plan for releasing the tapes, Thiele knew that recording every single night of these performances had to be done. The resulting release proves his historical foresight. In 2006, Greenleaf music took ...

Dave Douglas & Keystone: Moonshine

Read "Moonshine" reviewed by John Kelman

It's unlikely that Dave Douglas expected the Grammy-nominated Keystone (Greenleaf Music, 2005) to turn into an ongoing project, but as a parallel to his quintet of the past half decade, the trumpeter has forged a distinct entity with the group he now calls Keystone.
