SoundPrints: Dave Douglas & Joe Lovano quintet

What do you get when you bring together an award-winning saxophonist and a renowned trumpet player? Exactly: a masterly display of energy and liveliness. Partners in arms Joe Lovano – the sax legend was already there at the first edition of Gent Jazz in 2002 – and trumpeter Dave Douglas present their now third Sound Prints project; a tribute to Wayne Shorter. Lovano: “Sound Prints is a free-flowing, joyous expression of music in the social environment we live in today. We dare to improvise and create music within the music – in a democratic way each piece comes to life on its own.”Who are we to contradict him?
