Pianist-composer Kris Davis is one of the most progressive and most productive musicians on the New York jazz scene. In 2012, she was dubbed one of jazz’s top up-and-comers in an article in The New York Times; according to the article, if you want to hear jazz in New York, you should ‘track down the pianist Kris Davis’. Canadian-born Davis released her first album in 2003 and has worked with different formations since that time. Last year she founded the octet Infrasound which she describes as ‘a living, breathing wild animal.’ The ‘animal’ is made up of bass clarinetists Ben Goldberg, Oscar Noriega, Andrew Bishop and Joachim Badenhorst, guitarist Nate Radley, accordionist/organist Gary Versace, and drummer Jim Black with Davis herself on piano. With Infrasound Davis explores the boundaries between rock and jazz, and between written composition and free improvisation. The group’s first album Save Your Breath is due for release in spring this year.
