Kris Davis Trio
Vancouver born, Brooklyn-based pianist Kris Davis performs with her trio, in her first ever UK concert.
Imagine an amalgam of Cecil Taylor, Matthew Shipp and Morton Feldman and you're beginning to get a picture of Kris Davis - one of the most exciting and free-thinking pianists to emerge from the New York scene in recent years. From avant notions and frantic prepared piano through to thoughtful melody and time, Davis brings together a whole range of techniques and influences under the umbrella of her own unique sound. At points her sense of urgency and propulsion can be nothing short of jaw-dropping and she is joined by New York stalwarts, bassist John Hébert and drummer Tom Rainey, for the creative journey.
