Monthly Report from New York

From Jazz Right Now:

Drummer Devin Gray, who has been actively working in the underground Brooklyn scene now for nearly a decade, is finally getting some deserved attention with two records released in the past year. The latest, his sophomore record as a leader, Relative Resonance (Skirl), features some astute compositions that make great use of the abilities of the members of his quartet. Reeds player Chris Speed and pianist Kris Davis, who both possess a wide emotional range, shift between bold, angular moments and gentler strokes.
