Drummer/composer Jeff Davis, known as the “propulsive force” behind a host New York mainstays, brings his dynamic quintet of longtime kindred spirits to perform from his most recent album, The Fastness. Davis showcases his command of a deeply focused and distinctly improvisational style, guiding his band just to the edge, while at the same time exercising focus and restraint.  With over 20 years of collaborative playing experience, this shape-shifting, improvising chamber group is sure to impress. 

They practically throw themselves into this music, as you can hear on a track called “Mountains, Mountains, Water,” which seems to draw loose inspiration from sources ranging from the Mahavishnu Orchestra to John Zorn’s Naked City.”  - Nate Chinen - Take Five WBGO

With: Jeff Davis (drums/compositions), Kirk Knuffke (cornet), Jason Rigby (tenor sax), Jonathan Goldberger (guitar), Chris Tordini (bass)
