Album Remarks & Appraisals:
The Navona Records debut from chamber-jazz group Douglas Detrick's AnyWhen Ensemble features composer and trumpeter Douglas Detrick's ten-movement suite, The Bright and Rushing World, commissioned by Chamber Music America. This work, which George Grella called 'impressively clear, inventive and compelling,' (Big City Blog, 2.4.14) is not a pastiche of styles, but a thoughtfully-constructed hybrid of music with a unique and personal sensibility inspired by sources as diverse as Duke Ellington, Gil Evans, Benjamin Britten and Igor Stravinsky.
American Record Guide, July/August 2014
The Bright and Rushing World (2012) is a 10- movement, 64-minute suite composed by Douglas Detrick for his jazz quintet Anywhen Ensemble. Detrick is the group's trumpeter. It is a thoughtful piece, played tastefully. Interesting music, fine playing.
