Douglas Detrick’s Cartography draws a map of the landscape of American music, from gospel to blues to traditional ballads through creative arrangements and original compositions drawing on Detrick’s background in jazz and chamber music. The newest of Detrick’s many musical projects, ranging from a big band to the chamber-jazz quintet AnyWhen Ensemble, this group continues his commitment to the blending of jazz with chamber music, this time inspired by the many channels of the American folk tradition. This ensemble has taken on several forms ranging from solo performances, duos, trios and quartets, all featuring the composing, arranging, singing and trumpet playing of its founder and leader.
Cartography has included the following musicians:
Mazz Swift, violin; Tanya Kalmonavitch, Karen Waltuch – Viola; Sara Schoenbeck – Bassoon; William Seiji Marsh, Jonathan Goldberger, guitar; Keith Lowe, bass; and Paul Kikuchi, drums.
