We Have Voice is a collective that has come together to work for positive change in the performing arts. Consisting of Fay Victor, Ganavya Doraiswamy, Imani Uzuri, Jen Shyu, Kavita Shah, Linda May Han Oh, María Grand, Nicole Mitchell, Okkyung Lee, Rajna Swaminathan, Sara Serpa, Tamar Sella, Terri Lyne Carrington, and Tia Fuller, the group:
is a collective of musicians, performers, scholars, and thinkers from different generations, races, ethnicities, cultures, abilities, gender identities, economic backgrounds, religious beliefs and affiliations. Together, they are determined to engage in transformative ways of thinking and being in their creative professional world, while being ingrained in an inclusive and intersectional analysis.
Learn more about the collective on their website and via profiles from NPR and the New York Times.
This week they released a Code of Conduct to Promote SAFE(R) Workplaces in the Performing Arts which NPR's Michelle Mercer describes as, "an aspirational document that helps define sexual harassment and consent for the unusual workplaces and unique circumstances of the performing arts, offering clarity and tools for anyone who witnesses or experiences harassment."
Greenleaf Music is proud to support the Code of Conduct in all of the work that we do.
We hope you'll work to implement it in your community.
Please consider getting involved and supporting their efforts. We can all work towards positive change.

Thanks to the folks at WBGO for premiering the new video for Ups and Downs from the upcoming Sound Prints album Scandal, which releases worldwide on Friday.
Here's what Nate Chinen had to say about the music:
“Ups and Downs” ... is an especially lyrical Douglas tune from the excellent new Sound Prints album, Scandal. (The album features five compositions by Douglas and four by Lovano, along with a pair of redrawn Shorter classics, “Juju” and “Fee Fi Fo Fum.”) A floating ballad set in motion by a drift of arpeggios, it brings out the tender balladeer in Lovano, and the intrepid gallant in Douglas. All the while, the rhythm section — Joey Baron on drums, Linda May Han Oh on bass and Lawrence Fields, who also crafts a fine solo, on piano — creates the undulating current that makes the track’s title feel descriptively apt.
You can pre-order the album on Bandcamp, iTunes, Amazon to get three tracks instantly.

Every Town is the third track released on this new series. Really hoping folks will subscribe and check out this new music. I will be printed on CDs at the end of the year and by subscribing, you will get one. As well as hearing each track as it is released. The serial release is definitely part of the creative vision for this music for me.
UPLIFT brings together my care and concern for our country, with composition and improvisation for a new and bold team of musicians. Joe Lovano plays tenor, clarinet, and flute. Mary Halvorson and Julian Lage play guitars. Bill Laswell plays bass. Ian Chang plays drums and electronics. It was recorded and mixed by longtime Greenleaf associate Tyler McDiarmid.
This is a full on new studio release for me and I couldn’t be more proud. What’s more, it addresses social issues that I feel are of paramount importance. It’s my small way of doing my part, and pointing in the direction of organizations doing crucial work. We can’t get discouraged. There is too much work to do. Won’t you join me in supporting:
National Committee on Pay Equity
My Brother's Keeper Alliance
NY Common Pantry
More music and more topics to come in the months ahead. Thank you.
Dave Douglas and Uri Caine are taking their trumpet-piano duo project on the road in Europe.
