Interesting ..... the DownBeat reviewer (James Hale) gave it 1 star - 1 
star!   I'll leave it at that and you can read the review and take it 
up with DownBeat.  We'll be watching to see what happens in 

Meanwhile the same issue of DB (April, just out) has four reviewers in 
The Hot Box all giving four star reviews to Dave Douglas' Live at Jazz 
Standard, which is available by download only.  I've heard some of it, 
and I think you should check it out  - it's intriguing and inviting 
music and a lot of it!  All twelve sets played that week at Jazz 
Standard were recorded and made available for download - how's that for 
confidence in your band?

If you've seen his band live, you know how they turn on an audience and 
their audiences usually include a lot of young people.  I'm adding some 
tunes from the sets reviewed in DB.  www.greenleafmusic.com
