Private Music for Brass Quintet



[glm_product_options]

Private Music, two movements for brass quintet, was written for Brian McWhorter and the Extension Ensemble in the summer of 2001. It was first recorded on their album, New York Presence. At the time there were plans to add a drummer for this piece, but in the end the group performed the piece as written. The score is available in transposed and non-transposed versions.

Dave Douglas' Tiny Bell Trio is one of his most intriguing groups, a band consisting of the leader's trumpet, guitarist Brad Shepik, and drummer Jim Black. Due to Shepik's versatility, Douglas' inventive originals (only a Hungarian folk song and a classical melody from Robert Schumann are not by the trumpeter) and the interplay between the musicians, this project is a strong success. The music often looks towards Eastern Europe folk melodies but maintains its ties with American jazz and is full of constant surprises. One of four Arabesque masters whose ownership recently reverted back to Douglas.

Continuing the innovative approach to tribute records he began in 1994 with the Booker Little homage In Our Lifetime, Douglas dedicates Stargazer to the great Wayne Shorter. Only three tracks, however, are Shorter compositions: "Pug Nose," "On the Milky Way Express," and "Diana." The rest are Douglas originals that are inspired by Shorter, although Douglas is far too clever to make the inspiration obvious. Featuring Joey Baron on drums, Uri Caine on piano, James Genus on bass, Chris Speed on tenor sax/clarinet and Josh Roseman on trombone. One of four Arabesque masters whose ownership recently reverted back to Douglas.
