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."
