Sound Prints displays unique and magical convergence of sounds.
The jazz quintet Sound Prints, led by the Grammy-winning saxophonist Joe Lovano and two-time Grammy nominated trumpeter Dave Douglas, performs at 8 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 8 in Lafayette College’s Williams Center for the Arts, 317 Hamilton St.
Tickets are $20 and can be purchased by calling the box office at (610) 330-5009 weekdays from noon to 2 p.m., 4 to 5 p.m. and one hour before the show.
Two leading figures of jazz, Lovano and Douglas were co-leaders of the renowned SFJAZZ Collective, which paid tribute to living icon Wayne Shorter by showcasing his original arrangements as well as newly composed pieces that were influenced by his compositional voice.
From that 2008 collaboration, the two men formed the Joe Lovano & Dave Douglas Quintet: Sound Prints, a name play on Shorter’s “Footprints.” The all-star ensemble includes up-and-coming pianist Lawrence Fields, bassist Linda Oh, and drummer Joey Baron.
Still inspired by Shorter, the quintet plays its own tunes, displaying a unique and electric convergence of musical minds.
WDIY 88.1 FM, Lehigh Valley Community Public Radio, is the 2012-2013 media partner for the Jazz Masters Series at Lafayette. The concert is funded in part by the National Endowment for the Arts, which supports the Lafayette College Jazz Master Series.
