USA, Poland

The band: divine. The music: biblical. With his new quintet the American trumpeter turned his attention to the fifteen "Songs of Ascent" from the Old Testament. They are "fascinating and inspiring" psalms, as Douglas says, with titles such as "Lift Up My Eyes", "Peace Within Your Walls", or "Let Your Ears Be Attentive". According to the press release, the 60-year-old New Yorker had the band "drummed up" by his colleague Joey Baron, himself on drums. 39-year-old saxophonist James Brandon Lewis, who ruled with his own "Unruly Manifesto" in Saalfelden four years ago, back then with trumpeter Jaimie Branch, who passed away in 2022. The Polish pianist Marta Warelis, who now lives in Holland, is on piano – her "classical avant-garde" could already be heard in Douglas' previous project "Secular Psalms". Finally, Nick Dunston from Berlin via New York on bass, who only played with Cansu Tanrikulu in Saalfelden last year. “Everybody is jumping on board a moving train”, as Douglas explains. “It’s a spiritual statement as much as a musical one.”
