Pre-order the Dave Douglas ‘Marching Music’ CD now

The pre-order for Dave Douglas Marching Music is open now!

We’re releasing our 2020 Subscribers Series MARCHING MUSIC as a special premium release from Greenleaf Music only. Like last year’s ENGAGE, we decided to make this exclusive music available as a stand alone CD and download to non-subscribers on Bandcamp only.

The suite of ten new compositions by Dave Douglas was literally conceived in imagining conscious participation in events supporting Climate Marches, Demonstrations for Equal Rights, Voting Rights Movements, and all other actions towards a just society. The music is performed by a new quartet with guitarist Rafiq Bhatia, bassist Melvin Gibbs, and drummer Sim Cain. As Dave notes:

Rafiq, Melvin, and Sim are some of my favorite players. I also reached out knowing the intent of the project and that they would understand the impulse. This is music to listen to in your headphones at marches, protests, demonstrations. Of which we attended many before the shut down. We’re now marching virtually, supporting our causes from home.

Pre-order the album (CD and digital)  here. The record with be released on November 6.

All Greenleaf subscribers have this the entire album as part of their Bandcamp collection. Tire 2 and 3 subscribers will get a CD copy in November.  Get your subscription now to join our community of listeners, and stream and download this series, as well as 30+ hours of additional exclusive content and 70+ releases from our catalogue.
