DAVE DOUGLAS AND THE MUSIC OF RANDY WESTON
Admittedly I have a bias towards innovators, I do find that Dave Douglas is quite remarkable at creating original work, such as his Tiny Bell Trio, and at re-voicing the work of others, like Wayne Shorter and Mary Lou Williams. He has revisited the electric work of Miles and the free jazz of the 60's. These days, it is easy to feel that when it comes to jazz....nobody cares....but as far as I know this music is not recorded or available anywhere else but Youtube. i believe his own company, Greenleaf posted it.
