FESTIVAL OF NEW TRUMPET (FONT) – NEW JAZZ PREMIERES
Curated by Dave Douglas and Jeremy Pelt
In The New York Times, Nate Chinen wrote: “Since being founded by the trumpeter Dave Douglas in 2003, the Festival of New Trumpet Music [FONT] has reveled in newness and yes, trumpets, in rich profusion. And with each new season, it has become more of a festival, spreading out over the map as well as the calendar...” Jazz Standard will host a series of FONT performances featuring outstanding personnel and world premiers of specially commissioned works.
