About this event

A performance by trumpeter and composer Dave Douglas is a musical journey, and for this trip, Dave is performing music from his Gifts project. Inspired by the life and music of the great woodwind master, Charles Lloyd, Gifts reflects on the wisdom and positivity of the great jazz legend, exploring in particular Charles’ fascination with the music of Billy Strayhorn, the composer of “Take the A Train” and “Lush Life.” The band focuses on song forms and the manipulation of tone in their interpretations of each piece. Think evocative, beautiful atmospheric sound, shifting and developing.

This event is part of the 2024 Stanford Jazz Festival.
