There's an interesting article on Dave Douglas at Bloomberg.com: "I get disappointed when I go to Europe,'' Douglas says, "and I'm sitting in some cafe and I'm talking with the musicians and promoters and somebody says: 'Isn't it ironic that the country that gave us this music is only capable of looking back? In America, it's all about playing Louis Armstrong music, recreating the 50s, and wearing old-fashioned suits.' I hear this all the time. I'm trying to prove that there is also progressive music in the U.S.'' Douglas also comments on this article in his blog.
