Douglas Detrick

“Douglas Detrick is one of the brightest young talents to emerge in Oregon jazz lately.” - Brett Campbell, Willamette Week, 8.27.09

Douglas Detrick, 25, is a composer and trumpet player based in Eugene, Oregon. Equally at home as a performer and a composer, he is a versatile and eclectic musician. Detrick has released two recordings in 2009. “Walking Across” is a collection of original compositions performed by his chamber jazz group Douglas Detrick’s AnyWhen Ensemble that feature improvisation and composition woven together into an engaging new music that lies somewhere between chamber music and jazz. The AnyWhen Ensemble, in addition to its debut recording on 8Bells Records, completed a successful, self-produced west coast tour, including a performance in Seattle featuring composer-pianist Wayne Horvitz, who played with the group on one of his own compositions and one by Detrick. Detrick also released “The Turning Point” with his jazz quintet the Douglas Detrick Quintet. This album expands on and honors the jazz tradition with an emphasis on the possibilities of integrating composition with improvisation.
