Moving Portrait is the ninth album by trumpeter Dave Douglas. It was released on the Japanese DIW label in 1997 and features performances by Douglas, Bill Carrothers, James Genus and Billy Hart. The album includes Douglas' interpretations of three compositions by Joni Mitchell.[2]


On All About Jazz Jim Santella stated "Like all forms of art, the result is a session that includes drama, variety, and a story that attaches different meanings to each viewer or listener. Douglas' music evolves from the hard bop idiom, with special care given to the presentation of his unique ideas. The trumpeter uses a soft attack, round tone, fluid articulation, and unlimited imagination to honor beauty in various forms. ...Recommended".[3]
