The Many Voices…


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.


Limited-edition autographed Three Views box for your contribution to charity.

The end of a year is always a time to look around at some excellent nonprofits and charities that we can help. And when we were at Jazz Standard celebrating GPS with four different groups, we took the time to have all the musicians sign the Three Views box set. We will be selling them and donating all the proceeds to charity.

Dave Douglas / Three Views: GPS Vol 1-3 [3CD Box]

Due to the overwhelming response for the Greenleaf Portable Series, and multiple requests for a physical format issue, we present Three Views: GPS Vol 1-3 [3CD Box]. Available now for preorder.


Three Views: GPS Vol 1-3 [3CD Box] (Out of Print)

In 2011, Greenleaf launched a new series of releases dubbed the Greenleaf Portable Series. These three recordings found Dave Douglas leading recording sessions with different groups and players harkening back the shorter, more informal sessions that were the backbone of jazz recording for many years. GPS releases were designed to be digital-only releases to be distributed quickly here at the Greenleaf store, on iTunes, and through the Greenleaf Cloud Player. Due to the overwhelming response for the series and after multiple requests for a physical format issue, we present Three Views chronicling the three GPS releases from 2011.
