A special concert co-presented by the National Arts Centre and the Canada Council for the Arts for jazzahead! and Canada’s Guest of Honour presentation at the Frankfurt Book Fair in 2021.
Canadian Pianist-composer Kris Davis was voted pianist of the year in the 2020 Downbeat Critics Poll and in the 2019 Jazz Times Critics Poll. She won both composer and pianist of the year in 2020 by the Jazz Journalists Association. The New York Times dubbed her as one of the top up-and-comers, saying: “One method for deciding where to hear jazz on a given night has been to track down the pianist Kris Davis.”
This project is part of Canada’s Guest of Honour presentation at the Frankfurt Book Fair in 2021. We acknowledge the support of the Canada Council for the Arts, the National Arts Centre, and the Government of Canada.
