Douglas on Blue Note

Featured Artists:

Art Blakey, Betty Carter, John Coltrane, Kenny Dorham, Duke Ellington, Bill Evans, Jim Hall, Billie Holiday, Ken McIntyre, Jackie McLean, Herbie Mann, Lloyd G. Mayers, Charles Mingus, Oliver Nelson, King Pleasure, Max Roach, Wayne Shorter, Cecil Taylor, Phil Woods

 

  • The jazz line Douglas produced for United Artists was very well received by the audience and marketplace
  • A stunning line-up, a jazz “who’s who” including successful classic recordings and other tracks that had never been on CD before
  • Liner notes: English, French, Italian

 

Douglas was able to round up an impressive list of talent for one-time-only appearances. By putting Bill Evans together with Jim Hall, and Duke Ellington with Charles Mingus and Max Roach, which yielded two enduring classics, Douglas obtained a mix of personalities that would create something different from what these musicians were already doing and thereby stand out from the rest of their catalogs. “That’s how you become a record producer,” Douglas says. “You’re a fan first.”

 

  • Douglas has worked with many of the century’s underground greats, from Lenny Bruce,
    Timothy Leary and The Last Poets to Eric Dolphy, Miles Davis and, most controversial of all, Jimi Hendrix

Press Quotes:

“His business sense, ear for originality, and talent for bringing together unlikely musical partnerships was forged in the late 50s out of a love for the music and a respect for the musicians he was dealing with. Unlike many of his record executive contemporaries, Douglas was a man with trust on his side…Douglas brokered some of the most influential recordings of the time…their impact is still felt today” — The Wire
