Dave Douglas

~ Person


Dave Douglas (born March 24, 1963) is an American jazz trumpeter and composer whose music derives from jazz, classical music, folk music, electronica and klezmer.

Since 1993, Douglas has recorded more than forty albums as a bandleader. He has produced more than fifty, including all albums released by his independent label Greenleaf Music. He has also performed and recorded with dozens of musicians in jazz and popular genres and has been a member of the SFJAZZ Collective and various John Zorn ensembles. With his own groups, Douglas has pioneered new settings for the trumpet in jazz. In more recent years, he has explored collaborations involving modern dance, spoken word/poetry, and film.

Douglas served as the artistic director of the Banff Workshop in Jazz and Creative Music from 2002 - 2012. He is a co-founder of the Festival of New Trumpet Music, a non-profit charity that supports new and pioneering trumpet work across genres, genders and communities and is held annually in New York City.
