Strange Liberation

The trumpeter reconvenes the quintet behind 2002’s gem The Infinite, adding guitarist Bill Frisell’s quavering twang to the mix. He achieves a richly detailed sound, elegant even in its eccentricities. Often, Frisell and Uri Caine’s piano cast lovely sonic halos around Douglas’ pungent tone. There’s an intelligent cohesion to these wide-ranging tracks, and just the right tension between composition and improvisation.
