O’s Notes: Trumpeter Dave Douglas performs in multiple configurations across thirteen selections for“Engage. His musicians are Jeff Parker (g), Tomeka Reid (cello), Anna Webber (fl, t-sax), Nick Dunston (b) and Kate Gentile (d). The vibe is mostly modern jazz featuring original music by Douglas centered on optimism in the face of the chaotic state of world affairs. We enjoyed ‘Whole Souls‘, ‘One Sun, A Million Rays‘, ‘Sanctuary Cities‘ and ‘Living Earth‘, all songs promoting reflection.
