The Sydney Morning Herald reviews Dave Douglas ‘Dizzy Atmosphere’

Thanks to The Sydney Morning Herald for reviewing the recent Dave Douglas album Dizzy Atmosphere.

Reviewer John Shand says of the record:

“His Dizzy Atmosphere is not so much an homage to Dizzy Gillespie as a set of compositions and performances that couldn’t have emerged had Dizzy not come first. Two of Diz’s pieces are included: the much loved Manteca and little-heard Pickin’ the Cabbage. The originals either reference a Gillespie composition (however obliquely), or exemplify Douglas taking elements of the pioneer’s rhythmic and harmonic language and running with them, while passing the baton around his sextet. The upshot is unmistakably a Douglas album, with his love of mixing surging rhythms, angular lines and sections that float by like white clouds across a summer sky.”
