“Harmony usually isn’t the major point in a band with just two horns, a bass and a drum kit. (Note: no piano, no guitar.) But scarcity is opportunity. On “Never Mind,” a serenading new waltz on Dave Douglas and Riverside’s new disc, “The New National Anthem,” it’s all about the satisfying amity between Mr. Douglas’s trumpet and Chet Doxas’s tenor saxophone. And there’s a not-so-secret ingredient: those bubbling, two-note globules coming from the five-string electric bass of Steve Swallow, who wrote the tune.”
– Giovanni Russonello, New York Time
