Album Review

Steve Davis has distinguished himself as one of the first-call trombonists in New York City, while he has also been an important contributor to the group One for All, though he has an extensive discography as a leader as well. These 2007 sessions find Davis in top form, with a dream rhythm section anchored by the ageless pianist Hank Jones, with bassist Nat Reeves and drummer Joe Farnsworth. Davis' rich tone and fluid technique are evident in the run through "Yardbird Suite," while the loping treatment of"How Deep Is the Ocean" works equally well. Davis' one original is the soulful, gospel-flavored "The Blues," which adds trumpeter Roy Hargrove and vibraphonist Steve Nelson. Jones contributed "Minor Contention" (which also includes the expanded lineup), a snappy vehicle that at times suggests Horace Silver. There are plenty of compelling interpretations of standards and timeless jazz compositions, while the driving post-bop take of "When the Saints Go Marching In" is a refreshing change, particularly with Davis' amusing insertions of song quotes.
