Douglas Detrick’s sound is marked by the quiet vulnerability of his deeply personal narratives. Having grown up in classical and jazz music, Little One is Detrick’s first band playing original songs that feature him on banjo and vocals. Previously, he has co-written the song cycle Boldly Launched Upon the Deep inspired by Herman Melville’s MobyDick, received a 2011 Chamber Music America New Jazz Works Grant to compose and perform Bright and Rushing World with his AnyWhen Ensemble, appeared at the Stone, Phillips Collection, Jazz Gallery, and Issue Project Room, performed new music by Christian Wolff with the composer and the Merce Cunningham Dance Company at its farewell performance at the Park Avenue Armory, and joined the curatorial team of Dave Douglas’ Festival of New Trumpet Music. A songwriter, composer, multi-instrumentalist, and writer, Detrick currently serves as the executive director and trumpeter of the Portland Jazz Composers Ensemble in Portland, Oregon.
