DAVE DOUGLAS QUINTET The trumpeter and composer Dave Douglas has released two previous albums (both excellent) with this dynamic quintet, which includes the saxophonist Jon Irabagon, the pianist Matt Mitchell, the drummer Rudy Royston and the bassist Linda Oh. “Brazen Heart” (Oct. 2), dedicated to the memory of Mr. Douglas’s older brother, features nearly a dozen new pieces — like “Lone Wolf,” an intricate wind sprint — tailored to the band’s expressive strengths, which have become clearer and less constrained over several years (and countless miles) on the road.
