Add to Calendar 2013-02-09 8:00 PM 2013-02-09 Kris Davis's Capricorn Climber at Philadelphia Art Alliance Please join Ars Nova Workshop for the Philadelphia debut of Capricorn Climber, the new ensemble led by the pianist Kris Davis featuring the saxophonist Ingrid Laubrock, the violist Mat Maneri, the bassist Trevor Dunn and the drummer Tom Rainey. About Kris Davis, The New York Times writes, “Her playing uses space and tension and contrast; it always has an interior plan and doesn’t leap at you to show you how hip it is. It’s very open, but it comes with rules.”

The New York City pianist Davis has worked with Tim Berne, Andrew Cyrille, Mary Halvorson and Bill Frisell. She has recently worked on several albums released by Clean Feed, including her solo album Aeriol Piano, Tony Malaby’s Novela and, with the drummer Tyshawn Sorey and the saxophonist Ingrid Laubrock, the critically-acclaimed Paradoxical Frog.

Laubrock, the German saxophonist in Capricorn Climber, has worked with Evan Parker, Veryan Weston and Jason Adasiewicz; she is also the leader of Sleepthief and Anti-House (with Kris Davis). The violist Mat Maneri has worked with Cecil Taylor, Matthew Ship and William Parker, and he has recorded several albums as leader for labels such as Leo, hatOLOGY and Thirsty Ear. The bassist Trevor Dunn has worked with Mr. Bungle, the Melvins, John Zorn, Fantômas and Nels Cline. Tom Rainey, Capricorn Climber’s drummer, has worked with Tim Berne, Marc Ducret and Craig Taborn, and he leads a trio with Laubrock and Mary Halvorson.

With Capricorn Climber, Davis says she is “focusing on compositions that embrace the first meeting of this group: the instant chemistry when improvising, the sonic qualities and blends between the instruments and each individual’s ability to shape ideas and create a story using the compositional material.”
