Kris Davis, Ingrid Laubrock, Dylan van der Schyff
One of modern jazz’s most in-demand pianists, Kris Davis’ resolutely individual artistry offers “uncommon creative adventure” (JazzTimes). The New York-based musician has worked with John Zorn, Tyshawn Sorey, and Mary Halvorson, and was named DownBeat Rising Star in 2017. A DownBeat Rising Star herself, German-born, Brooklyn-based tenor saxophonist Ingrid Laubrock (Tom Rainey, Anthony Braxton) channels new music influences into her “wildly inventive’ (JazzTimes) approach. A leading figure in Vancouver creative music, Dylan van der Schyff is a drummer of incomparable vision and sensitivity. He’s consistently brought surprise and sophistication to collaborations with Dave Douglas, John Butcher, and a host of creative greats.
