Trumpeter Dave Douglas's feet have always been planted all over the map. A mere eight months separate the release of his Soul on Soul and A Thousand Evenings, each played by very different, long-standing Douglas bands. Douglas's Charms of the Night Sky quartet helms Evenings and does a fine, dramatic job at creating drummerless drama extraordinaire. They weave together a convincingly broad spectrum of accordion (Guy Klucevsek), violin (Mark Feldman), bass (Greg Cohen), and the leader's trumpet--invoking tangos, impressionism, a touch of avant jazz, and a host of other disparate musical strains into a lovely chamberesque set that sounds spirited rather than staid, colorfully middle-range, and burnished rather than monochromatic.

Douglas's horn is liquidly brilliant in an unhurried way, but it's still able to go frantic (as on the two-part "Branches"), as are Feldman's violin and Klucevsek's more artfully lumbering accordion. His nod to the late pianist Jaki Byard (the three-part "In So Many Worlds") likewise alternates between the lyrical and the urgently impassioned. As with Astor Piazzolla's bands and, later, the Tin Hat Trio, Douglas is looking to mine his drummerless band's multiple layers for a rhythmic push, and Evenings shows that the band is with the trumpeter all the way. --Andrew Bartlett

This is a wonderful follow-up to Charms of the Night Sky. As stated above, this is a great display of group interaction. You can tell these guys have been playing together a while now. This release contains humor (check out Goldfinger) and passion and plenty of instrumental sparks.
I was lucky enough to see this group a couple of days after the Cd came out. As good as this set is, it pales in comparison to that show. "On Our Way Home" was so exciting that the entire audience had to same "DAMN" during Feldman's solo and during Douglas' solo. If you get a chance to see them - Do!
I admire Douglas' method of confronting his musical interests. I think most people involved in music, whether as players or listeners, genreally have a wide variety of stuff they like to hear. Douglas actually puts together separate bands for each style, releasing albums that are consistant instead of mixing the groups on the same releases. In the words of Mr. T, "I pity the fool" who has to put a greatest hits package someday.

Dave Douglas again proves he will not be restrained by musical or categorical boundaries. The unique blend of instrumentation (trumpet/accordion/violin/bass) coalesces into an enticingly different soundscape. Most of all, for all its musical exploration, it is still a jazz album of the highest quality. Dave Douglas manages to cultivate a trumpet sound that is entirely his own, bright and clear with a slightly acidic and fractious edge to his phrasing. The other players can't be faulted, and overall, this is a fascinating record.

Format: Audio CD
I have a pretty extensive CD collection, and for one reason or another, every now and again a CD I should have paid more attention to gets forgotten in my collection and sits around for a long while before getting its fair shake. Sometimes I listened to it once and never got back to it, or it wasn't something that worked for me yet, but I figured I'd come back to it in six months or so. And then every so often, one of these gets forgotten and lost and ends up being ignored for five years until something makes me pull it out again.

So I saw Dave Douglas over the weekend and grabbed the two CDs I bought of his several years ago and gave them another spin. In the time since the last listen, I've developed an unhealthy John Zorn obsession, and my tastes have evolved pretty drastically. So when I played with one again, I pretty much wondered what the heck I was thinking not listening to this one more carefully.

"A Thousand Evenings" is the second album by Douglas of a band exploring, well, quite a bit to be honest. It's sort of Balkan jazz in the way Masada is Jewish jazz-- a horrible oversimplification, but as good a summary as any. Douglas (on trumpet) is joined by violinist Mark Feldman, accordianist Guy Klucevsek, and bassist Greg Cohen in a bizarre, swinging, and melodic project. All four perform with an uncommon fire and passion, whether the pieces are delicate and mournful (Douglas' playing on the title track and "In So Many Worlds- Mournful"), ecstatic and explosive (everyone on the stunning "In So Many Worlds- Ecstatic") or just plain hard swining and brilliant ("The Little Boy With the Sad Eyes"). The album manages that delicate line between moody and boring well, and while the "Goldfinger" cover is a bit flat, the rest of the record is pretty much superb. Recommended.
