Dave Douglas & High Risk
Dave Douglas & High Risk
“High Risk” is an exciting new electro-acoustic quartet lead by Dave Douglas. At the vanguard of modern jazz and electronic music, High Risk incorporates elements of improvisation into its sound, beat and song. On bass and drums, current scene leaders
Jonathan Maron and Mark Guiliana explore new territory through groove and 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.

"In this space, as “Molten Sunset” makes abundantly clear, beats blend with sharp improvisation, samples and manipulated sounds with hard-crafted groove, mystery and funk and things unexpected. It’s an exciting race to the edge of jazz’s modern frontier, and no place for the foolhardy or unprepared." - Nick DeRisio, Something Else
