Solve for X: Featuring Pianist Kris Davis
A JCM Visiting Artist Collaborative Concert.
On March 13, acclaimed jazz pianist and composer Kris Davis comes to Longy as the inaugural visiting artist in a new collaborative concert series. Fluid within multiple musical idioms, Kris has made an indelible mark on the global jazz community over the past decade, blending elements of jazz, free improvisation, and contemporary classical music. Most recently her release Diatom Ribbons was hailed as the #1 Jazz Album of 2019 by the New York Times. Solve for X, a nod to mathematics that underpin music structures (and also to the challenges of finding spontaneous musical solutions to unknowns while improvising), features Kris Davis and the JCM students collaborating in various settings and combinations. The concert will range from Kris’s solo piano explorations to duo or trio improvisations, to select compositions from Diatom Ribbons, to large ensemble structured improvisation (conduction).Tickets Livestream
