Drummer/composer Jeff Davis brings his powerful ensemble back to Cornelia Street with a grip of new music. Featuring improvising greats Russ Johnson, Jon Irabagon, Jon Goldberger, and Drew Gress, Davis leads his band with a hypnotic ease, creating moods that are at times peaceful and other times explosive. Davis is known as the “propulsive force” behind a host New York mainstays, and on his most recent LIVE record, Dragon Father, Jeff Davis showcases his command of a deeply focused and distinctly improvisational style. Davis's band dances just at the edge of chaos, creating a performance that is not to be missed.
“Mr. Davis, a drummer and composer of sure footing but adventurous inclination.” – Nate Chinen (New York Times
