The Kris Davis Trio TONIGHT at Jazz Gallery!

May 11, 2013

davisLong favored by her peers and jazz fans in the know, Kris Davis has earned high praise from no less than star pianist and MacArthur “Genius” Grant honoree Jason Moran, who included her in his Best of 2012 piece in Art Forum, writing: “A freethinking, gifted pianist on the scene, Davis lives in each note that she plays. Her range is impeccable; she tackles prepared piano, minimalism and jazz standards, all under one umbrella. I consider her an honorary descendant of Cecil Taylor and a welcome addition to the fold.”

She has been generating nothing but interesting music recently, and here she presents new music commissioned by the Jazz Gallery. She has a proven rapport with the bassist John Hébert and the drummer Tom Rainey, who round out her trio. At 9 and 10:30 p.m., Jazz Gallery at Salt Space, 1160 Broadway, fifth floor, at West 27th Street.

See you TONIGHT!
