Order CD / Digital on Bandcamp

The Dave Douglas Quintet finished their extensive Brazen Heart tour throughout Europe, Australia and the US with a four night run at the Jazz Standard November 19-22. Featuring saxophonist Jon Irabagon, pianist Matt Mitchell, bassist Linda May Han Oh, and drummer Rudy Royston, the group delivers a roller-coaster ride of complex harmonic and rhythmic structures, veering between fierce and soulful.

To capture the quintet’s musical alchemy, Greenleaf Music recorded all four nights – 8 1-hour sets, 48 tracks – and released them digitally a week later on Bandcamp. Fans could purchase the complete set or each individual night.

Now on CD for the first time, this music is available as a complete set (8 CDs) or individual nights (2 CDs), all featuring repertoire from the band’s three acclaimed studio albums Be Still (2012), Time Travel (2013), and Brazen Heart (2015).

Order the complete set in one package or the Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday performances from our store. The CDs were released worldwide on December 7. The Saturday recording is the only one currently offered on Spotify, iTunes, etc.

“Douglas’ quintet … is one of the best working groups in jazz. In recent years, Douglas’ unflagging intellectual curiosity has led to the creation of a diverse body of work…. His quintet, however, represents a creative pinnacle.”
– Michael Hamad, Hartford Courant

“Ever the innovator, trumpeter Dave Douglas’s latest release, through his own Greenleaf label, is another brave attempt to change the way we consume music…. Nothing beats the live experience, especially when it comes to improvisation, but these releases of entire live sets come a close second…. this group is one of the finest on the contemporary New York scene, and here’s more proof.” The Irish Times

“… these players have developed a vital shorthand, a band dialect … a high bar for chemistry.”
– Nate Chinen, New York Times
