Joe Lovano and Dave Douglas: Sound Prints
After a two-year pandemic-induced hiatus, the 43rd annual Tri-C JazzFest Cleveland, presented by KeyBank, returns to Playhouse Square June 23-25.
Grammy-winning saxophonist and composer Joe Lovano and two-time Grammy-nominated trumpeter Dave Douglas are both masters within the pantheon of modern jazz. When they debuted their Sound Prints quintet in 2013 it was in homage to Wayne Shorter’s risk-taking, fearlessly inventive spirit. “The whole concept of the band is dialogue and interaction,” Douglas notes. “And when you play that way, nobody can retreat into the role of their instrument. Everybody’s playing everything, all the time.” The performance features Leo Genovese (piano), Matt Penman (bass) and Rudy Royston (drums).
