Seeing as we're broadcasting his set at Wangaratta, we thought we'd preview Dave Douglas' new quintet album.

ABC Jazz will be crossing live to the 2015 Wangaratta Festival of Jazz to bring you a performance by the US trumpeter Dave Douglas and his quintet. So, to whet your appetite, his new album Brazen Heart - featuring the very same band he's bringing on tour - will be on high rotation all this week.

The new CD is quite a ride, with nine new compositions as well as two arrangements of spirituals - 'Deep River' and 'There Is A Balm in Gilead.' Brazen Heart is dedicated to Dave's late brother Damon, who sadly passed away earlier in 2015.
