Dave Douglas, the 2013 Monterey Jazz Festival Showcase Artist, is widely regarded as the most prolific and original trumpeter-composer of his generation. He has released more than 30 recordings since 1993. His unique contributions to improvised music have earned prestigious awards, including a Guggenheim Fellowship, Aaron Copland Award, two GRAMMY nominations, and Trumpeter, Composer and Jazz Artist of the Year Awards from the Jazz Journalists Association, DownBeat, JazzTimes, and many others.
Limited number of tickets. Directions and details to follow. Proceeds will benefit the Big Sur Land Trust and the Monterey Jazz Festival.
Our hope was to lead a hike to the hut and perform a unique concert that would help celebrate the outdoors and 125 years of the Appalachian Mountain Club’s hut system. Despite several rehearsals of mountain music to play near the Appalachian Trail and our successful test hike in June, we will not be allowed to present this concert.
Unfortunately, the Forest Service manages the White Mountains National Forest and won’t permit the performance. We hope that at some point we can find a way to present a concert and are still trying to find ways to make other special outdoor musical events possible, drawing listeners and nature lovers outside to appreciate music in the majestic surroundings of our nation’s finest parks. Please check back for updates and we welcome any input that our listeners might have. Thank you and we apologize for the cancelation.
Join us for a free public hike and performance in the White Mountains of Franconia Notch, New Hampshire at the Greenleaf Hut!

Douglas gives an idea of this special event, “On August 24 we will hike up in the morning, have lunch at the hut, and the concert will happen that afternoon. Then we will all hike back down. The concert is free, except you have to make the hike to hear it! I know some fans that are already in training!” Performing outdoors is not a new idea for Douglas—his 2005 album Mountain Passages, recorded for his late father as the inaugural release on his Greenleaf Music label, was celebrated with a performance on a mountaintop in Italy as part of a festival called Suoni delle Dolomiti. “It was a wonderful, communal experience,” said Douglas. “I was thinking, ‘Why isn’t this happening in the States?’ We should be doing concerts in our wonderful national parks, along the Appalachian Trail or the Pacific Crest or you name it.”

Dave Douglas with UCO 5th Street Jazz Collective
Grammy-winning saxophonist and composer Joe Lovano and two-time Grammy nominated trumpeter Dave Douglas bring their all-star ensemble Sound Prints to the Bass Concert Hall stage for an evening of powerhouse jazz.
In addition to collaborating on acclaimed recordings such as Trio Fascination: Edition Two and John Zorn’s Stolas, Lovano and Douglas were co-leaders of the renowned SFJAZZ Collective in 2008, showcasing arrangements of jazz icon Wayne Shorter. The experience led the two instrumentalists to assemble this all-star quintet for a national tour.
Joe Lovano has distinguished himself for some three decades as a driving force in creative music. He has recorded 22 albums for Blue Note Records in 20 years, and is a member of the dynamic young jazz ensemble Us Five, which also features bassist Esperanza Spalding. In 2010, Lovano was awarded the Jazz Journalists Association’s Musician and Tenor Saxophonist of the Year andDownBeat’s Jazz Artist and Tenor Saxophonist of the Year.
Dave Douglas has earned national and international acclaim including trumpeter, composer, and jazz “Artist of the Year” by such organizations as the New York Jazz Awards, Down Beat, and Jazz Times. In addition to fronting his own groups, Douglas has an important ongoing musical collaboration as a member of John Zorn’s Masada and with artists such as Anthony Braxton, Don Byron, and Bill Frisell.
“[Joe Lovano] After 30 albums as a leader and at least 25 years in the spotlight, it’s clear Joe Lovano is more than a dominant figure in jazz. He’s a vibrant player who delivers an award-worthy performance every time out.”
