Sound Prints, the innovative quintet co-led by saxophonist Joe Lovano and trumpeter Dave Douglas. On April 6, 2018, Greenleaf Music will release Scandal by Sound Prints.

Every year for the past few years we have produced a special recording session to be released via our subscription series. Before that, we released special unreleased extras, outtakes, and other discographical oddities. It’s what you will get exclusively when you subscribe to Greenleaf Music.

UPLIFT is our response to the current political and social climate of the United States and beyond. Challenging ourselves to consider how we can pitch in toward positive change, each track released throughout 2018 highlights a specific social cause and references organizations doing important work. The ensemble includes: Joe Lovano on tenor, clarinet, and flute; Mary Halvorson and Julian Lage on guitars; Bill Laswell on bass; Ian Chang on drums and electronics.
