Trumpet player and composer Dave Douglas is always searching for a new musical experience, and bringing audiences along with him.

Evening Jazz host Abe Beeson spoke to Mr Douglas at the recent TD Vancouver International Jazz Festival, and learned how Dave had to travel to Spain to get the jazz bug, his formative years playing with Horace Silver and later with John Zorn. He also spoke about how important the audience is to the jazz experience, and his successful recording company Greenleaf Music.
