There is prolific and then there is Dave Douglas. Over the course of his 20+ year career the acclaimed trumpeter has recorded more than 4o albums as bandleader and produced at least 50 more. While primarily known as a jazz musician, Douglas has worked with musicians and composers from all over the musical map, including forays into klezmer and electronic music. On his visit to Studio 1A, Dave Douglas brought along pianist Uri Caine to perform songs from their Present Joys album. A collection of songs dedicated to the Sacred Harp singing tradition in the American south.
