The new recording by Douglas Detrick’s AnyWhen Ensemble is due to be released on Origin Classical Records in January of 2011! We’re very excited about this recording and hope that you will like it. It will be available at our live performances (details below) and also online at the Origin Classical website and at many online distributors.

To celebrate this new release, we’ll be playing at the Is That Jazz? Festival with the great pianist and composer Wayne Horvitz in Seattle. Wayne is fantastic and we’re very honored to be playing with such a prolific and accomplished musician. We’re also playing with Wayne in Eugene, OR at the University of Oregon and with Ben Darwish in Portland, OR at Darwish’s Notes from the Underground jazz series at the Mission Theatre. We hope to see you at one or more of these shows, and if you can’t make it, make sure you get a copy of the record. It came out beautifully and we’re all very proud of it.

About the record: 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 drums. 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.
