ENGAGE: New Music from Dave Douglas for Subscribers 2019

Announcing ENGAGE: Dave Douglas’s new piece for Greenleaf’s subscriber series.

ENGAGE is a direct descendant of UPLIFT, the 2018 set of compositions dedicated to positive action.

You can read Dave’s complete program notes here and subscribers can stream the first track, “Showing Up,” on Bandcamp. We’ve also made this track public to non-subscribers here.

The ensemble came together for a debut performance at Zürcher Gallery in December 2018, featuring Anna Webber (alto and bass flutes, tenor sax), Tomeka Reid (cello), Jeff Parker (guitar), Nick Dunston (bass), and Kate Gentile (drums). The group then went into the studio a few days later to record the entire series of music.

Throughout 2019, we are releasing a new track each month exclusively for subscribers. Subscribers can stream and download the material on Bandcamp. There will also be engaging ‘extras’ on the subscriber feed as the year goes forward.

Please join us as a subscriber to gain access to this unique material and more.
