Sound Prints ‘Other Worlds’ named to NPR “Best Music Of May” list

NPR has named Other Worlds from Sound Prints to their “Best Music Of May” list!

For the show “All Music Considered,” Nate Chinen says of the album:

Trumpeter Dave Douglas and tenor saxophonist Joe Lovano originally formed Sound Prints in tribute to a mutual lodestar, Wayne Shorter. That navigational point holds true on their third full album, Other Worlds, without in any way restricting the realm of possibility. Sound Prints — a combustible quintet with Lawrence Fields on piano, Linda May Han Oh on bass and Joey Baron on drums — sounds completely at ease with its risk envelope, and Lovano and Douglas have honed their writing for the group. This is a perfect illustration of the post-bop language evolving through sly creative usage.
