Album of the Year 29 May 2000
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I really do reserve that title for only one album every year. Now maybe my views will change by December 31, but I doubt it. First things first: even at his most accessible, Dave Douglas is not very accessible on first or second listen. But the more I listened to this album, the more I realized that these compositions are brilliant; these musicians are playing at the top of their game; and that they are interacting telepathically with one another. By the fifth listen or so, my ears were finally catching up to the wonderful music that these guys were hearing as they made the album. It was then that I realized why this album really is a heartfelt tribute to Mary Lou Williams. Sure, before that I knew that Douglas had thrown in some superficial tributes: for example, a few tunes were written by Mary Lou, and several tracks (most notably, Soul on Soul) incorporate stride piano lines and bebop licks and other styles that Williams played during her long career. But after repeated listenings, I realized that the real tribute comes in the nature of the music itself: it is highly experimental and deeply spiritual, which is precisely how I would describe Mary Lou Williams at her best. It is jazz and yet not jazz. It is soulful, but not in the Motown or even Judeo-Christian sense of the term. Douglas's life experiences are obviously not the same as Mary Lou Williams', but he brings to his music the same passion and self-assured identity that Mary Lou Williams brought to her music. It is hard to explain if you have not experienced it; just an overwhelming sense of peace and contentment that stems from the musician's confidence in his craft and where he is in his life. That quality enables the listener to enter the music, to get inside of it in a way that (in my experience) only Mary Lou Williams could duplicate. The music is all his own, which paradoxically is his real tribute to Mary Lou Williams.

Dave Douglas does it again! 18 Feb. 2000
By Mr. T. Haillay - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
On this, the third of DD's sextet recordings, he uses the music of Mary-Lou Williams as a springboard for his own compositions. The results are magnificent, from hard-swinging reinterpretations of M-L W, to more ruminative originals. The band are on fire, Joey Baron, James Genus and Uri Caine are in superb form; the sax chair is shared between Greg Tardy and the great Chris Speed (check out his Deviantics recording on Songlines); Josh Roseman is fantastic as ever (what a sound he has!). Dave Douglas can seemingly play what he wants, he has the chops to do anything, and what taste... This is vital, important music. Buy it!

Starts off pretty dry, but... 15 Aug. 2005
By Michael Stack - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
An album that is almost universally praised, I've never found Dave Douglas' "Soul on Soul" to be quite as engaging as most folks do. Douglas, a trumpeter of stunning abilities, composed this album as a tribute to Mary Lou Williams, pairing four of Williams' compositions with nine originals. It's not that it's a bad record, the songwriting is solid, the performance is superb throughout, but it's just missing something.

What that something is, I think, is a traipse outside of the more conventional grounds-- the first half of the album finds the band really not cutting loose at all-- no one really seems to dig in-- there's no crazed solo from Douglas that leaves your jaw hanging open, nor does the supporting cast (on most tracks Chris Speed on tenor sax and clarinet, Joshua Roseman on trombone, Uri Caine on piano, James Genus on bass, and Joey Baron on drums with Greg Tardy on tenor sax and clarinet on four tracks) ever seem to have one of those moments where you really feel they're stealing the show. This all changes with "Multiples", where all of the sudden everyone is on fire, and the remainder of the record is full of the kind of energy and power I'd hope to hear, but five great tracks on a record doesn't make a great album.

Worth hearing, but Douglas has better material that burns the whole way through.

Elevating (not elevator) music 5 April 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is the album of the year, so far. Dave Douglas' compositions shine, thanks to the brilliant playing of these musicians, who represent the New York axis of cutting-edge jazz. Although this may be perhaps Douglas' most accessible work, it does not pander. Whether the tune is "in the groove" (Mary's Idea or Blue Heaven), a ballad (Kyrie or Canticle), or on the progressive side (Soul on Soul), Dave & co. present it in an intricate, yet uncluttered style that may bounce around the musical spectrum, but never stops swinging. This is serious music for serious listening, but I also find it to be very relaxing, even with that second cup of coffee. As for reviewer Douglas,listed below--a few simple mouse clicks will bring you to the Kenny G/Dave Koz pages, where the music should be more to your "taste".

Easier to Admire than to Love 10 July 2009
By Karl W. Nehring - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Trumpeter Dave Douglas finally landed a contract with a major label, but the music remained the same. On this outing, which Douglas produced himself, his band (Douglas on trumpet; Chris Speed on clarinet and tenor sax; Greg Tardy on clarinet, bass clarinet, and tenor sax; Joshua Roseman on trombone; Uri Caine on piano; James Genus on bass; and Joey Baron on drums) plays music by and in the style of pianist Mary Lou Williams. As usual on Douglas's "tribute" recordings, most of the music is by Douglas, but there are several Mary Lou Williams compositions; indeed, you can hear the whole operation shift gears when they come to the first of her tunes, "Aries," when everything seems to crank up a notch.

There is certainly no denying the talent of Douglas and his band, but I still find this music easier to admire than to love. Somehow, everything seems just a bit too earnest. If, for example, you play a Dave Douglas CD and then put on a Nicholas Payton CD, you'll likely find that the latter just sounds more spontaneous, more swinging, and just plain more fun. Still, Douglas is a major talent, and Soul on Soul is an impressive recording. The sound quality is pretty good, and the liner notes are educational and worthwhile. This is a first-rank production all the way around, and perhaps most jazz lovers will love it even more than I respect it. If so, they will be head over heels.
