About Spirit Moves

Dave Douglas' first studio album in three years and the debut recording of his project Brass Ecstasy, Spirit Moves features Douglas alongside Vincent Chancey (French horn), Luis Bonilla (trombone), Marcus Rojas (tuba) and Nasheet Waits (drums) paying homage to the brass instrument with eight new original compositions and three arrangements of classics by Otis Redding, Hank Williams and Rufus Wainwright. Over the past several years, Douglas steadily honed his work with Brass Ecstasy with appearances at the 2008 Chicago Jazz Festival, which commissioned new music from the group, Willisau Festival, Reggio Calabria Jazz Festival, and The Festival of New Trumpet Music. Informed by the evolving spirit of brass music and by his multi-faceted career as the director of The Festival of New Trumpet Music, label head of Greenleaf Music, a renowned composer, artist, and record producer, Douglas has penned an ambitious collection of lyrical songs with impressions of folk, pop and soul music.

The DVD included in the Deluxe edition (not available in stores) beautifully captures the in-studio workings of Brass Ecstasy shot by Jem Cohen (REM, Patti Smith) and Christoph Green (Wilco, Burn to Shine). Featured songs include: “This Love Affair," “Bowie," “Great Awakening," “Mister Pitiful," “Fats," and “The View From Blue Mountain."

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
