Sound Prints Quintet: Live At The Village Vanguard

Originally published on Mon June 23, 2014 9:49 am

Few jazz bandleaders are as active — and as actively acclaimed — as saxophonist Joe Lovano and trumpeter Dave Douglas. But while they've met from time to time on the bandstand, their brief overlap in the SFJAZZ collective — during a season when the compositions of Wayne Shorter were featured — got them to lead a band together. It's a quintet in which they share compositional duties and top billing. And it's a band featuring two up-and-coming musicians in pianist Lawrence Fields and bassist Linda Oh, as well as Joey Baron, a drummer with whom they've grown up in music.

The Sound Prints Quintet has toured this year, and will play some U.S. dates when it swings into New York's Village Vanguard for a week. (Both Douglas and Lovano are well acquainted with the place.) WBGO and NPR Music featured this live concert by the band, broadcast on air and as a video webcast, on Wednesday, Nov. 28.
