About DKO

Better known of late as rhythm section for the funkified techno of James Patrick Plays, as well as providers of many a hue and shade in the dazzling improvisations of supergroup Coloring Time, electronic jazz trio DKO (Jon Davis-bass & bass clarinet,  John Keston-keyboards & electronics, Graham O’Brien-drums) have long maintained a quiet, confident presence on the Twin Cities music scene. Punctuating their sleeper status with high profile performances at Art-A-WhirlNorthern Spark Festival (Battle of Everyouth @ Minneapolis Institute of Art in 2011, Teleportation Platform X @ Union Depot in 2013) and Weisman Art Museum’s WAM @ 20, the trio improvise captivating compositions from scratch (sometimes for hours at a time) with little or no discussion or planning (or breaks!). Each player in DKO has distinguished themselves on their chosen instruments, mastering a variety of styles and working with a multitude of well-known artists. It is in the open water of freely constructed composition, however, that Davis, Keston and O’Brien are at their best as musicians, plotting new courses over seas well-travelled and those not at all. Wherever they go, DKO never forget to bring the deeply evolved grooves and sublime modalism that is their signature.
