Dave Douglas & Greenleaf in 2011

As we sift through our epically full inboxes and move further and further away from vacation daze, we can't help but get a little nostalgic for 2011—even as it's just passed. There was a new website, a new music series, new artists, new albums... it seems everything was NEW last year. So before we can move on to all the going-on's we have scheduled this calendar year, a quick recap of some of the music we released in 2011 is necessary for us in this crazy hit-it-and-forget-it internet world we've all grown accustomed to.
