Iowa City, Iowa (July 1, 2017)

Pianist-composer Kris Davis has blossomed as one of the singular talents on the New York jazz scene, a deeply thoughtful, resolutely individual artist who offers an “uncommon creative adventure,” according to JazzTimes. Reviewing one of the series of striking albums that Davis has released over the past decade, the Chicago Sun-Times lauded the “sense of kaleidoscopic possibilities” in her playing and compositions. She made her debut on record as a leader with Lifespan (Fresh Sound New Talent, 2003), followed by several more albums with various groups over the intervening years, many earning best of the year accolades from various publications. She was named one of “25 for the future” by Down Beat in 2016. She teaches at the School for Improvised Music.  For the Jazz Festival, Davis will be joined by Mat Maneri on viola, Ingrid Laubrock on saxophone, bassist Trevor Dunn, and drummer Tom Rainey. About her art, JazzTimes declared: “Davis draws you in so effortlessly that the brilliance of what she’s doing doesn’t hit you until the piece has slipped past.”
