Present Joys

Order CD/LP/Digital

“An interesting format to hear jazz musicians perform in. Exposed, risky and with the potential to go in any number of directions.”

London Jazz News

 

“[A] beautiful new album of duets.”
Richard Scheinin

The Sacred Harp, Ye Olde New-England Psalm-Tunes, The Southern Harmony and Musical Companion: these ancient “tunebooks” form the basic repertoire for countless musical groups that keep the tradition of “shape-note” singing alive. Longtime friends and collaborators, trumpeter Dave Douglas and pianist Uri Caine, reunite as a duo on this recording, exploring these 18th and 19th century American songs and their influence on jazz and popular music.

Praise for "Riverside"

GRECD1036_Riverside_cover-opt

 

The reviews are in! Critics love "Riverside," the collaboration between co-leaders Dave Douglas and Chet Doxas featuring Steve Swallow and Jim Doxas. Grab your copy today!

"..a sturdily approachable new jazz quartet...this is a band that could easily keep going for a while without running out of options."
Nate Chinen, New York Times

"Riverside injects some toe-tapping, feel-good soul and brotherly hoots and hollers into the music."
Ken Micallef, DownBeat

"A great jazz disc predicated on one of the most heartening jazz revivals in many years."
Jeff Simon, Buffalo News

"The deceptive simplicity of folk-based themes, rich harmonic counterpoint and subtle rhythmic interplay are the basic foundations of Giuffre's aesthetic—aspects Riverside makes its own on this vibrant premiere."
Troy Collins, All About Jazz

"...a great collection of compositions album that is free in spirit and feeling."
Paul Acquaro, Free Jazz Blog
