Dave Douglas Quintet Live at Jazz Standard is available only as a
download from greenleafmusic.com . Check with Jim Tuerk for more info
- jim at greenleafmusic.com . It's an interesting project, issued and
distributed the same week it was recorded. They're complete sets as
played in the club, as close as it gets to live jazz. I think that
contributes to the immediacy and spontaneity of the project - like
Miles at The Blackhawk or The Plugged Nickel or Monk at The It Club. I
have the first sets from Dec 6 & 8 - the same ones reviewed in
The band sounds great, Dave Douglas, Donny McCaslin, Uri Caine, James
Genus & Clarence Penn are all at the top of their game. Pour a cold
one and turn down the lights. Lemme tell ya, it'll hold your attention.
This feels more like real jazz than anything I've heard for a while.
