Kris Davis Quinet


Her recent Aeriol Piano kept listeners on the edge of their seats, a solo disc teaming with craggy lyricism and fetching conundrums. The record was also indicative of the way Davis’s ensemble music works, and this new band should express a bit of that. Mat Maneri’s viola mixes with Oscar Noriega’s reeds in the front line, and their dark hue—one of Davis’s favorite palette choices—should prove bewitching. Watch how she leads her rhythm section into delicate delirium.
