Trumpeter Dave Douglas is a prolific composer and a powerful performer of improvised music. His output as a bandleader is one of the most eclectic in history, featuring dozens of groups on over 50 unique recordings. Metamorphosis marks a bold new conceptual approach to organizing music for improvisers and features an all-star gallery of legendary voices. For this special engagement, Douglas has enlisted some of the most influential modern improvisers, many of them Douglas’ own heroes: trumpeter Wadada Leo Smith, saxophonist Oliver Lake, drummer Andrew Cyrille, guitarist Marc Ribot, pianist Myra Melford, bassist Mark Dresser, and percussionist Susie Ibarra. All of these artists are known for their uninhibited approach to improvisation and for being highly responsive team players, as well as leaders in their own right. Metamorphosis has been recorded exclusively for Douglas’ Greenleaf Music imprint, with new tracks released digitally every month. Come witness the warmth and spontaneity in person as these masters create new music on the spot. These Appel Room concerts will be the very first live performances of this bold new music.
Free pre-concert discussions nightly, 6pm and 8:30pm.
