Greenleaf Music is thrilled to announce GIFTS, the new album and ensemble from trumpeter Dave Douglas. This is his first brand new album in almost two years.

Gifts is about the blessings of life and music that we share with each other. It’s about celebrating the gift of the music we love across generations. These gifts stem from our common humanity, so essential to our survival as a species. The musical arts are a gift that is shared between musicians, and also with listeners as part of a perpetual conversation. Cherishing the music of the past blesses us to make the music of the future. And despite the odds, to go on creating pathways for generations to come. Gifts we give and gifts we receive. That’s where this music is coming from.  – Dave Douglas

The group will be on tour for a string of engagements in March 2024 in Europe, including additional member Tomeka Reid.
