Dave Douglas - Uplift
Queen Elizabeth Hall, London.
Under 14s must be accompanied by an adult. We cannot issue refunds to under 14s who are not accompanied by an adult.
The fearless trumpeter and composer plays with a stylistic breadth that roams far and wide through the language of today's jazz. His most recent project brings together a typically fascinating band of like-minded spirits, including bassist and producer Bill Laswell - famed as producer of Herbie Hancock's seminal 'Future Shock' album - and one of today's most original guitar voices, Mary Halvorson. The music can be heard via Greenleaf Music and reflects Douglas' commitment to positive action - twelve tracks being released monthly, each one devoted to a major issue of concern for this world and its people.
'All hands on deck. It's imperative that all of us, together, work for positive change in this challenging moment - UPLIFT began as a reminder - to myself - to stay positive, stay active, and stay engaged. I hope this message reaches others through this music'. (Dave Douglas)
