"Run the Gauntlet” (out Sept 27) emerges as the latest album from Kris Davis, accompanied by the extraordinary talents of Robert Hurst bass and Johnathan Blake drums. Seamlessly melding composition with improvisation, this album stands as a testament to Davis’ singular voice within the jazz landscape.

Kris Davis is a Grammy award-winning pianist with 24 recordings and collaborations with artists such as Terri Lyne Carrington, Dave Holland, John Zorn, Craig Taborn, Ingrid Laubrock, Tyshawn Sorey and Esperanza Spalding. Kris Davis is a Grammy award-winning pianist and composer described by The New York Times as a beacon for “deciding where to hear jazz [in New York] on a given night.” 

Davis was named a 2021 Doris Duke Artist alongside Wayne Shorter and Danilo Perez, Pianist of the Year by DownBeat magazine in 2022 and 2020, and Pianist and Composer of the Year by the Jazz Journalists Association in 2021. 

In 2019, 'Diatom Ribbons' was named jazz album of the year by both the New York Times and the NPR Music Jazz Critics Poll. The album draws from the musical worlds of free improvisation, spoken word, electronica, mainstream jazz, R&B and rock. In 2023, Davis released 'Diatom Ribbons - Live at The Village Vanguard'  featuring Grammy winner and NEA Jazz Master Terri Lyne Carrington on drums, Julian Lage on guitar, Val Jeanty on turntables and electronics, and Trevor Dunn on bass.

Davis is the Associate Program Director of Creative Development at the Berklee Institute of Jazz and Gender Justice and the founder of Pyroclastic Records. Davis is a Steinway Artist.
