The in-studio workings of Dave Douglas & Brass Ecstasy shot by Jem Cohen (REM, Patti Smith) and Christoph Green (Wilco, Burn to Shine). The new album SPIRIT MOVES features Douglas alongside Vincent Chancey (French horn), Luis Bonilla (trombone), Marcus Rojas (tuba) and Nasheet Waits (drums) paying homage to the brass instrument and with eight new original compositions and three arrangements of classics by such disparate artists as Otis Redding, Hank Williams and Rufus Wainwright.

The opening track from Spirit Moves, "This Love Affair" by Rufus Wainwright, stands as a longtime favorite of Douglas'. He has previously covered Wainwright ("Poses," on The Infinite) and notes him as one of the greatest contemporary songwriters. Brass Ecstasy takes this dirge and rings every salty tear from the piece.
