Riverside, the quartet co-led by Grammy-nominated American trumpeter Dave Douglas and Canadian saxophonist Chet Doxas, returns with their second album featuring bassist Steve Swallow and drummer Jim Doxas. The record honors the musical impact of pianist and composer Carla Bley, including three of her compositions and new works from Douglas, Swallow and Doxas.
Following their debut release in 2014, this group presents a new album featuring spirited free playing, formidable ensemble interaction and new well-crafted compositions. The tracks transmit a palpable excitement and purpose towards this clear statement.
