A sublime listen as the very articulate, intellegent Dave Douglas engages the most creative minds in contemporary jazz. Hope Dave Douglas never stops!.
Worth a listen
I have really enjoyed several of these episodes. You get a really deep dive into the artistic process and come away hungry to listen to as much of these artists' music as you can find. I also love the warmth and down-to-earthness of it. I recommend it often.
Dave's podcast rocks. Shows like this are what I love about podcasting. It's so cool to hear these in-depth conversations and performances. Wonderful material.
