‹ Back to What's On Music: Uri Caine and Dave Douglas

2 May 2014

On Uri Caine
‘…exemplary compositions and virtuoso playing… alternately delicate and reflective, then vivid; vibrant; careening though never chaotic’
BBC Music

On Dave Douglas
[The] ‘show felt as if it had passed by in a flash, while boiling with enough ideas for a gig twice as long.’
The Guardian 

Keyboard wizard Uri Caine first made his name as sideman to improvisers including John Zorn and the virtuosic trumpeter Dave Douglas. Across 22 albums as a leader, he’s since carved out a niche of his own as a sonic adventurer with projects that place him at the forefront of today’s jazz world.

Here he returns to his roots in a duo format with his long term collaborator Dave Douglas, playing a specially selected collection of songs, hymns, and improvisations, ahead of a CD release in summer 2014 but available while on tour.
