HIGH RISK is a newly formed jazz band featuring the renowned trumpeter Dave Douglas, Shigeto, Jonathan Maron and Mark Guiliana.
The group was formed following a Red Bull event last year, where Shigeto performed a live, jazz-inspired drum solo. His performance caught the attention of Douglas, who called upon bassist Jonathan Maron and drummer Mark Guiliana to form a quartet.
“This is completely different from the processes that go on in my other bands,” explains Douglas. “And at the same time it’s totally the same: a bunch of highly skilled individuals who bring themselves and their personality and their skills to the table, to attack these ideas and materials that I bring into the session.”
Taken off their recently released self-titled album, “Cardinals” really shows off the band’s depth and skill for creating gorgeous sounds.
