Trumpeter Dave Douglas is what jazz legend Miles Davis liked to call a person who fornicates with mothers. This was Davis’ (the Prince of Darkness) go-to moniker for those rare musicians who impressed him. Indeed, the New York-born trumpet player who’s played with both John Zorn’s Masada and more traditional acts such as Horace Silver, is a mommy philanderer. But he fools around elsewhere too: Douglas uses genres as varied as classical, jazz, folk, klezmer and whatever else tickles his fancy to get his brass seductions across. A true musical philanthropist, Douglas gives as good as he gets. You can catch him live Oct. 6 at Sonia Vlahcevic Concert Hall in the W.E. Singleton Center for the Performing Arts, 922 Park Ave. Show starts at 8 p.m. and tickets are $7 in advance, $10 at the door, and free with Virginia Commonwealth University student identification.
