Prolific NYC trumpeter, composer and educator Dave Douglas' practice is best summarized by one trait: wild diversity. His array of current projects include many crucial players in today's exploratory music landscape, among them Anna Webber, Tomeka Reid, Bill Laswell, Shigeto, Uri Caine, and Andrew Cyrille. Having received such distinctions as a Doris Duke Artist Award, a Guggenheim Fellowship, an Aaron Copland award, and two Grammy Award nominations, Douglas has also composed for the Trisha Brown Dance Company, Essen Philharmonie, and served as artistic director of the Banff Centre's Jazz and Creative Music workshop.

Marching Music is a direct outgrowth of today's uncertain political climate, conceived as "music you could have in your headphones when you attend Climate Marches, Demonstrations for Equal Rights, Voting Rights Movements, and all other actions towards a just society." This dynamic quartet sees Douglas alongside young guitarist Rafiq Bhatia (Vijay Iyer, Valgeir Sigurðsson, Moses Sumney), stalwart bassist Melvin Gibbs (Rollins Band, Vernon Reid, Sonny Sharrock, Arto Lindsay) and powerhouse drummer Sim Cain (Rollins Band, Greg Ginn, Elliott Sharp).
