Dave Douglas & So Percussion Bad Mango



Dave Douglas & So Percussion - Bad Mango album cover


As part of the broader Greenleaf Portable Series featuring trumpeter Dave Douglas leading groups with drummers Marcus Gilmore and Nasheet Waits, Vol. 3 highlights So Percussion, bringing Douglas’s horn together with various percussion instruments for a wild concoction of rhythm, melody, and improvisation. JASON TREUTING lends a traditional kit to the rollicking “One More News,” while ADAM SLIWINSKI, JOSH QUILLEN, and ERIC BEACH fill the space with a buffet of musical saw, glockenspiel, marimba, toy bells, and crotales. Each player thinks compositionally, and the proceedings avoid cacophony, even when the group dispenses with meter, as on the textural “Time Leveler.” (Greenleaf) www.greenleafmusic.com
