For the past twenty years, saxophonist Joe Lovano and trumpeter Dave Douglas have been prime moving forces in the US jazz scene, their paths crossing often on stage and occasionally on record. ‘Sound Prints’ was created when they found what Douglas describes as ” the proper balance of personnel,” bringing pianist Lawrence Fields, bassist Linda Oh and one of the most sought after drummers in US jazz, veteran Joey Baron together to form their new quintet. Taking their inspiration from the music of Shorter – the band’s name is a nod to his classic “Footprints,” the focus of this heavyweight quintet is on new original compositions – the latest suite of which are featured in their newly released second album ‘Scandal’, which was launched in April. The quintet continually explore swinging, heartfelt and sophisticated new territory, and are fast becoming something of a ‘supergroup’ of contemporary American jazz. “The band switches tack, changes mood and explores the byways of each theme with wit, invention and a sound that is entirely their own” – Financial Times Review
