This Tuesday, March 7th, The Jazz Gallery will present a special, one-night-only event featuring three of the most acclaimed and adventurous improvisers on today’s New York scene—pianist Kris Davis, bassist Eric Revis, and drummer Johnathan Blake.
Revis and Davis are no strangers to collaboration, as Davis has held the piano chair in several of Revis’s groups, including his trio. Last year, that group (featuring Gerald Cleaver on drums) put out an acclaimed new record on Clean Feed, Crowded Solitudes, which was recorded after a two-night run at the Gallery. Check out the Revis and Davis’s fiery interplay at last year’s Vision Festival, featuring Andrew Cyrille on drums.
Revis also has a connection to Blake—the pair are The Jazz Gallery’s inaugural fellowship recipients. They have both spent two weeks working on new music at the Rockefeller Brothers Fund in Tarrytown, NY and will present this new work later in the year. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to hear such talented improvisers stretch out in a new configuration.
Kris Davis (piano), Eric Revis (bass), and Johnathan Blake (drums) play The Jazz Gallery on Tuesday, March 7th, 2017. Sets are at 7:30 and 9:30 P.M. $22 general admission ($12 for members) for each set. Purchase tickets here.
