Personalities | Dave Douglas | Contemporary Era | Jazz & Blues

(Trumpet, b. 1963)

Dave Douglas spans musical abstraction and gutsiness in acclaimed albums and a busy, international touring schedule. After attending Berklee School of Music, New England Conservatory and New York University, he studied with classical trumpeter Carmine Caruso and toured with Horace Silver. He has recorded for a variety of small labels, as well as BMG-RCA Victor, and is known for his Tin Hat Trio (jazzing Balkan music) and John Zorn’s Sephardic-tinged jazz quartet Masada. In 2005 Douglas introduced his own record label with Mountain Passages.
