Add to Calendar 2018-02-23 7:00 pm 2018-02-23 Dave Douglas: Dizzy Atmosphere at The Appel Room Trumpeter and composer Dave Douglas returns to The Appel Room with another one-of-a-kind program. In Dizzy Atmosphere, Douglas will use Gillespie repertoire as a starting point for improvisation and exploration. Gillespie's music has the necessary depth for it to be carried in many different directions – as demonstrated by a vast and varied history of incredible interpretations – and Douglas always finds a delightfully unexpected path towards interesting musical fusions. Joining him is a powerhouse group of improvisers and composers known for making thoughtful and exciting contributions in practically any musical context. Making his Jazz at Lincoln Center debut is trumpeter and Thelonious Monk Competition winner Ambrose Akinmusire. On piano is Gerald Clayton, a rising star with professional experience far beyond his years. On bass is the extraordinary performer and composer Linda Oh, who recently joined Pat Metheny’s touring band. On drums is the inimitable Joey Baron, who has performed with a broad range of jazz artists including Gillespie himself. Finally, the genre-defying guitarist Bill Frisell joins as special guest, performing with Douglas for the first time since their outstanding 2004 recording, Strange Liberation. With a sense of open-ended possibility, this new group is sure to present a soulful and creative vision of Gillespie and his music. Join us for a truly unique celebration of Dizzy Gillespie.
