HASH(0x97e18c30) out of 5 stars Think Kronos and Berne! 25 Nov. 2000
By David Watts - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Well -I would be the first to admit that I don't know an awful lot about Dave Douglas. But I have this CD, and it's pretty wild. Think Kronos Quartet with a bit of Tim Berne thrown in. There are moments of melody here, but with this line up you never quite know where the music is going to go. The liner notes make special mention that Douglas wants everyone to kow that this is an album make by five musicians. So let me mention them here - it's a good idea, because you can get an idea of what to expect: Mark Feldman (violin), Erik Friedlander (cello), Drew Gress (bass), and Michael Sarin (Drums.) And of course, Mr. Douglas with his trumpet.
This thing stretches out (72:07 in length) and flies in all directions. In some tracks we're looking at dissonant ranting (opening track being an example) while at other times they take their time to impress a melody, and not to fill every single space with a note.
I'm not going to say BUY THIS, BUY THIS here. It wouldn't be appropriate for this kind of disc. The fact is, when you're ready to spend time with something new - something different - something that will challenge you nine ways to Sunday - then go pick this one up. I can't imagine 50 years of listening to this would get you to the bottom of it.

HASH(0x9165d1e0) out of 5 stars Amazing! 22 July 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is the Dave Douglas 'Five' in top form...a step up (which I didn't think was possible) from the first album, 'Five.' The compositions on this album are of a greater depth and the playing by each individual in the group is so 'honed-in' it leaves me floored. 'Farewell Tony' is definitely the expressive climax on the whole disc..Dave's solo is ridiculously superb...inspired....a more than fitting tribute to Tony Williams. One of the best albums I have heard in a long, long time!

HASH(0x9165157c) out of 5 stars Very Challenging Record 9 May 2007
By argentspinnaker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
It begins with a rendition of a Burmese folk song, moves to a lengthy, somewhat dissonant piece called Meeting at Infinity, moves to a beautiful Kurt Weill piece and a Messiaen piece . . . well, you probably get the picture. At some level it explores and smashes the boundaries of Classical Music and Jazz. Its pleasure is not the visceral beat-bound pleasure that you get from listening to a lot of music, where the energy is in the beat and the exhilaration . . . rather, the pleasure, and it is almost exhilarating, is the sheer intellectual depth of this music and how demanding of a listen this is. It literally took me three days to get through this record the first time, partly because my wife complained about how much she hated it, but also because it is exhausting to listen to.

What is really remarkable about this, and it is something that I have never heard before, is Douglas' trumpet playing set against a string trio. Very unusual and not like jazz as you might expect it.

I would say to anyone who is interested in music that this is a great record to buy. You may not ever love it, but I think you will keep coming back to it again and again and finding new discoveries. I plan on buying a few more Douglas records, if only to annoy my family.! :)

HASH(0x913bac78) out of 5 stars Another Great Dave Douglas CD! 5 Jan. 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The prolific Douglas scores again with this, his third recording with his string group. Douglas is a master of utilizing unusual combinations of instruments. The string group is comprised of Trumpet, Violin, Cello, Bass and Drums. (His Tiny Bell Trio consist of Trumpet, Guitar and Drums) While the group does tackle a classical piece, a Messian composition originally for organ, there is no mistaking this for anything but jazz. Though I prefer "Five" this is still amust have cd.
HASH(0x95738bdc) out of 5 stars Final string quartet disc 3 April 2010
By Anthony Cooper - Published on Amazon.com
Dave Douglas put out three discs with his string group of Mark Feldman on violin, Erik Friedlander on cello, Drew Gress on bass, and Michael Sarin on drums. "Convergence" is the final one. Some people say this is the best of the three, but I am partial to "Five". "Convergence" has the same great combination of jazz with improvising strings and interesting songs. There is a lag in the middle of the disc, though. "Joe's Auto Glass" gets your attention in the beginning, and "Meeting At Infinity" is a good long song. The disc then meanders some, and I don't quite get the "Borders Stories" songs. "Collatoral Damages" starts to bring things around, then "Goodbye Tony" and a traditional jazz-sounding "Nothing Like You" close the disc as strongly as it started. This is a strong CD, and Dave Douglas fans should get it.
