Dave Douglas and High Risk (Jonathan Maron, Mark Guiliana, Shigeto)
Doors 8pm; General admission: $12, Reserved seating: $20
High Risk is an exciting new electro-acoustic quartet lead by trumpeter Dave Douglas. At the vanguard of modern jazz and electronic music, High Risk incorporates elements of improvisation into its sound, which is rooted in beat and song. On bass and drums, Jonathan Maron and Mark Guiliana explore new territory of groove meets electronic manipulation. With the addition of up-and-coming DJ and remixer Shigeto, the group fuses melodic lyricism, stuttering, textured electronics, deep bass lines and driving drums. Building on the excitement of the pioneering ensemble Keystone, this quartet is the latest chapter in Douglas' involvement in electronic jazz—an exciting and colorful new exposition of improvised possibilities.
