Kris Davis - The Slightest Shift mp3 album
The Slightest Shift is the second album by Canadian jazz pianist Kris Davis, which was recorded in 2005 and released on the Spanish Fresh Sound New Talent label. Subconsciously revealing her classical training, touches of Ligeti and Bartok hover in the margins of her phrasing.
The Slightest Shift is aptly titled-it shows just how the smallest movement can drive this quartet in a new direction. But more importantly, it's a release that reflects the leader's considerable stylistic growth as a performer and composer, strongly delivering on the promises made with Lifespan. Once; 35. Personnel: Kris Davis: piano; Tony Malaby: tenor saxophone; Eivind Opsvik: bass; Jeff Davis: drums. Title: The Slightest Shift Year Released: 2006 Record Label: Fresh Sound New Talent.
The Slightest Shift is young Canadian-born pianist Kris Davis' second release as a leader, following her acclaimed 2004 debut, Lifespan. Joined by her husband, drummer Jeff Davis, the ever reliable bassist Eivind Opsvik and the ubiquitous saxophonist Tony Malaby, this recent New York resident reconvenes her sympathetic working ensemble to investigate a new set of abstract post-bop compositions. Davis' contrapuntal, open-ended writing avoids routine devices like conventional chord changes and head-solo-head arrangements with a neo-classical sensibility
