Grammy-winning saxophonist and composer Joe Lovano and two-time Grammy nominated trumpeter Dave Douglas are current masters on their respective instruments within the pantheon of modern jazz. They have shown that their distinct and robust voices can lead, blend and push the idiom forward both in composition and improvisation, while embracing the front-line masters of previous generations. Once co-leaders of the renowned SFJAZZ Collective, the group paid tribute to living icon Wayne Shorter by showcasing arrangements of Shorter originals alongside newly composed pieces influenced by Shorter’s compositional voice. The experience was a catalyst that lead the two instrumentalists to conceive the Joe Lovano & Dave Douglas Quintet, Sound Prints; an all-star ensemble including up and coming pianist Lawrence Fields, bassist Linda May Han Oh, and drummer Joey Baron. The group’s latest album, Scandal, reveals them to be passionately adventurous band for whom no territory is off-limits. DownBeat praises Scandal for its ‘multiple layers of bright melody’ and ‘dymanic group interplay.’ Lovano says, ‘Sound Prints is a free-flowing, joyous expression of music in the social environment we live in today. We dare to improvise and create music within the music – in a democratic way each piece comes to life on its own.’
