  • Dave Douglas
  • In His Words
  • By Frank Alkyer with Dave Douglas
  • Trumpeter and Greenleaf Music label head Dave Douglas discusses the struggles, joys and triumphs of taking the creative path less traveled. Douglas, whose new quintet album is Time Travel, aims to celebrate his 50th birthday by embarking on a U.S. tour that will include stops in all 50 states.
  • Features
  • Money Jungle
  • 50 Years After the Summit
  • By Bill Milkowski
  • This year marks the golden anniversary of the release of Money Jungle, the utterly audacious, cross-generational meeting of Duke Ellington, Charles Mingus and Max Roach at Sound Makers Studio in midtown Manhattan.
  • Darcy James Argue
  • A Fable Grows in Brooklyn
  • By Brad Faberman
  • Although all the music for the new CD Brooklyn Babylon was composed by Darcy James Argue, the project was a true collaboration between the acclaimed Secret Society big band leader and graphic novelist Danijel Zezelj, who created the visuals that accompanied its premiere at the Brooklyn Academy of Music and conceptualized the fictional story it tells.
  • Free to Be Jane Monheit
  • By Allen Morrison
  • Appearing especially radiant these days, Jane Monheit exudes contentment. She has never sung better or with more conviction, belying the conventional wisdom that the best art rises from the ashes of misery. Her new album, The Heart Of The Matter Emarcy/Decca, takes big risks, goes for big emotions and cheerfully disregards genre.
