Douglas Ewart’s a good multi-instrumentalist who’s made his biggest contribution like a sideman. His stable, enthusiastic solos on alto sax, flute, bass clarinet and bassoon have already been heard within the rings of Fred Anderson, George Lewis, Muhal Richard Abrams, Anthony Braxton and Chico Freeman. A Kingston, Jamaica indigenous, Ewart shifted to Chicago in 1963. He became a member of the Association for the Advancement of Innovative Music artists in 1967, and researched theory and efficiency with Roscoe Mitchell and Joseph Jarman. He’s been presented on several classes within the ’70s,’80s and ’90s, but hasn’t released any releases like a innovator. Ewart do record a duo recording with George Lewis on Dark Saint. It’s on Compact disc, and he is able to be noticed on additional discs offering Freeman, Lewis, Braxton and Abrams.
