Doug White – Jazz Compositions
Composer, singer, tenor saxophonist featured throughout Europe and the East Coast with legendary singer Annie Ross (of Lambert, Hendricks and Ross fame), Doug White has enjoyed international acclaim at the helm of his own trios and quartets since the early 1970’s. Offering a program that ranges from bop to ballads, catchy original material as well as great standards, blues and modern-style improvising, Doug has entertained at New York City’s Supper Club, Jubilee, Bubble Lounge, and Rainbow and Stars, London’s Pizza On the Park and Green Room along with private engagements in Paris and Provence. He has performed at a number of European festivals as well, including Ireland’s Guinness Jazz Festival, where he was the subject of a two-hour documentary on RTE television, and has been the subject of profiles on the BBC World Service. In addition, Doug has performed with Milt Hinton, Tommy Flanagan, and Joe Puma. He was mentored early in his career in New York by Warne Marsh and Miles Davis. “A very solid tenor saxophonist!” Gary Giddins, Village Voice.
Doug White’s interest in musical composition was sparked by another of his mentors, film composer Sam Coslow, who was a major force in Paramount Pictures during Hollywood’s golden era and whose standards are still well known today. Doug White is also the founder of the independent record label Juniper Records.
