About Billie Davies' current Band/Music... All of Billie Davies' music is improvisational... a conversation between musicians and musical instruments, a joint emotional expression inspired by a certain common feeling, thought or perspective that is being communicated to an audience, a listener, a community. She practices the Art of the Jazz Musician, drumming the rhythms of Jazz, Jazz Fusion, Free Jazz and Avant-Garde music.
"I would describe this music as "contemporary modal with a romantic twist" or perhaps "neo-Cool Jazz". Very much like Freddie Hubbard, Tony Williams, Wayne Shorter, Miles Davis, Eric Dolphy & Jackie McLean but in 2012. Lyrical, good phrasing, nice rhythms but at the same time very approachable and listenable even for non jazz audiences. One could not better describe it then "Post-Cool Jazz".
