Riverside is a collective idea conceived by saxophonist, Chet Doxas and trumpeter, Dave Douglas. They are joined by bassist Steve Swallow and drummer Jim Doxas in a tribute to one of their common influences, clarinetist / saxophonist and composer Jimmy Giuffre .
In Riverside, each member of the group has written pieces that are designed to capture the creative spirit of legend Jimmy Giuffre.
Expect a beautifully artistic tribute from these amazing musicians. Please note that bassist Steve Swallow actually played with Jimmy Giuffre in the 60s.
Make plans for Riverside on August 7th as this Bearsville Theatre concert is their only American show date before they embark on a Canadian tour followed by the recording of an album of this repertoire.
