Douglas Detrick’s AnyWhen Ensemble is a part of a small but exciting group of ensembles fusing the jazz and classical traditions together into a new and vibrant music that respects and builds upon its sources. The ensemble draws its influence from musical genres ranging from classical and new chamber music, traditional and contemporary jazz, and free improvised music, as well as rock, electronica and folk music.  The music is intimate and personal, blending the spontaneity of improvised music with the balance and form of chamber music.

Rivers Music, the second album by the genre-crossing Douglas Detrick's AnyWhen Ensemble, follows its own course through the channels of jazz, free improvisation and contemporary chamber music, bringing them together into something engaging and unique. The New York-based composer and trumpeter Douglas Detrick finds inspiration in the movement of rivers for this extended meditation for trumpet, saxophone, bassoon, cello and drumset. Rivers Music has a broad and deep sensibility: quiet, delicate passages and forceful masses of sound all meant to amplify the mysterious whispers of the world around us.
