This Friday, June 3rd, The Jazz Gallery is proud to welcome pianist Kris Davis and her band Capricorn Climber to our stage for two sets. The group is made up of many of Davis’s longtime musical partners, each of whom is an adventurous band leader in his or her own right—saxophonist Ingrid Laubrock, violist Mat Maneri, bassist Trevor Dunn, and drummer Tom Rainey.
Before coming out to the Gallery for these two exploratory sets, check out Jazz Speaks’ interview with Davis from last spring, and one of the standout tracks from the group’s eponymous album, “Pass the Magic Hat,” a track that Nate Chinen of the New York Times described as “…an engrossing lesson in ensemble flux, carried out with finesse.”
Kris Davis & Capricorn Climber perform at The Jazz Gallery on Friday, June 3rd, 2016. The group features Ms. Davis on piano, Ingrid Laubrock on saxophones, Mat Maneri on viola, Trevor Dunn on bass, and Tom Rainey on drums. Sets are at 7:30 and 9:30 P.M. $22 general admission ($12 for members) for each set. Purchase tickets here.
