When Dave Douglas discovered the 15 biblical psalms of the "Song Of Ascents" for himself, the New York trumpeter and composer was immediately fascinated by the spiritual depth of this pilgrimage songbook. The fact that there are a total of 16 pieces of Douglas' psalm settings has to do with the fact that he began writing, however, without having even read the psalms in their entirety. And he noticed this after the first piece was finished. Then, while composing, he realized he wanted to play his "Song Of Ascents" with a new quintet - saxophonist James Brandon Lewis, pianist Marta Warelis, bassist Nick Dunston and his old buddy on drums, Joey Baron. Whereas in the trumpeter's earlier bands the spotlight was not only on him but often on his fellow musicians, this time it's different: the four band members collectively use their instruments to frame Douglas's radiantly crystalline trumpet playing, embedding it in a spiritual, almost sacred environment to express confidence, trust, and devotion with their intuitive interplay.

The complete program of all participating venues can be found on the Cologne Jazzweek website.
