Dave Douglas and Uri Caine

Jez Nelson presents longtime collaborators Dave Douglas (trumpet) and Uri Caine (piano) performing music from their new project, Present Joys, at the Howard Assembly Room in Leeds.

Longtime collaborators trumpeter Dave Douglas and pianist Uri Caine perform music from their first ever duo project, Present Joys.

Heavyweights of the American scene, both Douglas and Caine are known for their restless approach, covering vast ground from classical music to avant-garde, swinging post-bop to jazz-jungle crossovers. Their recent release, Present Joys, explores music inspired by the Sacred Harp songbooks - blending the rich history of New England's church-song traditions with elements of swing and improvisation. Here in concert at the Howard Assembly Room in Leeds, the intimate nature of the music allows for both instrumental voices to shine, in deft exchanges and stunning passages of exposed lyricism.

Presenter: Jez Nelson
Producer: Chris Elcombe.
