on our way…

Thanks to friends in Essen and Antwerp for a great start to this Dave Douglas 3 tour. MusikFabrik did a splendid job with three chamber pieces on Tuesday night.

Togetherness, for mixed septet (2002)
Irrational Exuberance, for violin and piano (2003)
Ascendant Sextet in memory Aaron Copland (2007)

It was the first time I had heard the sextet performed, a very special night for me.

Wednesday at DeSingel in Antwerp — great to be back and we really felt the warm welcome. Mark Feldman, Scott Colley and I will continue to play new music and arrangements for the next few weeks in Europe. We are having a lot of fun exploring the intimate format of this trio.

And thanks to the Crypto family for the engaging posts!
