Douglas, Dave - The Complete Remastered Recordings on Black Saint and Soul Note 6 x CD box set
I remember buying the 1st CD in this set, Parallel Worlds, when Dave was still a member of Doctor Nerve and this was his first solo album and being rather amazed at just what a great bandleader this guy who I only knew as 'a trumpeter' was! Shows you how little I groked soon to emerge fame and greatness! There's six wonderful albums here, including the 1995 recasting of John Coltrane's Ascension.
"American trumpeter and composer Dave Douglas has recorded more than twenty albums as bandleader and performed on dozens more alongside musicians such as John Zorn, Horace Silver, Bill Frisell, Sheryl Crow, Susan Vega and Sean Lennon. His compositions derive from many musical styles including classical, folk and Klezmer. This collection from Black Saint/Soul Note includes his complete recordings for the label. Included are Parallel Worlds (1993), Five (1996), Convergence (1999), John Coltrane's Ascension (1995), Bounce (1997) and Force Green (1994).
