Trumpeter Douglas marks birthday with box-set release

‘DD/50'

Dave Douglas, et al. (Greenleaf)

Trumpeter Dave Douglas celebrated his 50th birthday with a busy touring schedule and — up to now — two albums. At this point, he has decided to offer even more of a half-century celebration with a third release and a package that includes all of them and a performance DVD. “DD/50” joins the uplifting, folk-tinged “Be Still” and “Time Travel,” which is a clear-cut look at the strength of his group and his playing. To them, he added “Pathways,” a jazz suite commissioned in 2012 by the Banff Centre for the Arts in Canada. The physical version of “Pathways” is offered only in this collection, but is available for download. The package also contains the DVD and a card to other recordings and alternate takes online. The DVD generally is a good view of in-studio performances, but also has some art videos that seem like they were made in the early days of music videos. Overall, though, the collection is a look at the continued marvelous work of Douglas. The price is related to the age that sparked it: $50.
