Review: It’s not often that a bandleader is so selfless that they’ll open an album with a track they don’t play on. It seems perfectly appropriate here, though, because trumpeter Douglas’ Devotion is all about recognizing the value of others, particularly those who have inspired him musically. Artistically. devotion can be offered in a variety of ways, and no single version is better than the others. Here, Douglas teams with crack musicians pianist Uri Caine and drummer Andrew Cyrille.
