Glass Houses for Sound: Kris Davis and the Now’s The Time Ensemble
Longy’s Jazz and Contemporary Music (JCM) department hosts pianist/composer Kris Davis, performing solo and in collaboration with Longy’s “Now’s the Time” Ensemble, performing compositions from her album Diatom Ribbons.
The New York Times names Davis’s Diatom Ribbons #1 Jazz Album of 2019“ saying “…Davis, 39, has spent years as her generation’s powerhouse pianist in waiting. No longer. On “Diatom Ribbons,” her skills as a composer, band assembler, system builder and improviser — a musical auteur, basically — come fully into focus. Ms. Davis builds her compositions on crooked patterns and splintered loops that somehow become a kind of magnetic touchstone, bringing together wildly diverse musicians in tangled unity.”
