“A gifted pianist exploring the range of her instrument, with no boundaries” PopMatters

Canadian pianist/composer Kris Davis performs with her cutting-edge trio Diatom Ribbons comprising Davis, GRAMMY-winning drummer Terri Lyne Carrington, and Haitian DJ, sound sculptor, and percussionist Val Jeanty. Since her emergence on the New York scene in 2001, Davis has become one of the music’s singular talents—a deeply thoughtful, resolutely individual artist whose music lives at the intersection of jazz improvisation and 20th century classical composition. Jeanty is a master percussionist, electronic musician, and sound engineer whose work fuses electronics and African Vodou rhythms. Carrington is among the most celebrated instrumentalists in modern jazz and has collaborated with a who’s-who of jazz royalty, including Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, and Esperanza Spalding.

As a trio these three dazzle, bridging virtuosic interplay with deep percussive grooves and electronics.
