Magic Triangle is the eleventh album by trumpeter Dave Douglas. It was released on the Arabesque label in 1998 and features performances by Douglas, Chris Potter, James Genus, and Ben Perowsky.



The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow awarded the album 3 stars stating "Falling between hard bop and avant-garde jazz, the music tugs and pushes at the boundaries of the modern mainstream. Douglas varies the tempos and moods from piece to piece, giving listeners not only expertly played performances but a constantly flowing program. Although none of the individual selections have themes that will stay in one's mind after the CD has ended, the solos are consistently strong, the musicians blend together well, and the ensembles are colorful. Well worth exploring".
