Trumpeter and composer Dave Douglas leads a one-of-a-kind tribute to legendary trumpet player Dizzy Gillespie, with Gillespie’s repertoire as a starting point for improvisation and exploration. Joining Dave Douglas is a powerhouse group of improvisers and composers: David Adewumi, trumpet; Matthew Stevens, guitar; Fabian Almazan, piano; Linda May Han Oh, bass and Joey Baron, drums.
“Dizzy Atmosphere and its cross-connected comrades managed to acknowledge and salute Gillespie’s pioneering efforts without ever mimicking his motions or taking on his mantle. You couldn’t ask for a truer tribute to this giant.” – Jazz Times
“Despite its range, Mr. Douglas’s music sounds of one piece, connected most clearly by his trumpet playing, which can be sweet and pure or crackling and pungent, precisely stated or smeared toward wildness.” – Wall Street Journal
