O’s Notes: This brass rich quintet features Vincent Chancey (French horn), Luis Bonilla (tb), Marcus Rojas (tuba) and Nasheet Waits (d) and leader Douglas (t). The approach is layered harmonies that make the band sound larger than it is. The music is a blend of Crescent City jazz and popular music with sharp twists from Dave’s interpretations. It was inspired by Lester Bowie, one of Douglas’ primary influences. Fans of that genre will be thrilled.
