Ex-messenger keeping the message alive

Steve Davis is recognized as one of the great trombonists of his generation; a sideman with Art Blakey, Jackie Maclean, Horace Silver, and Chick Corea, he cut his teeth in Jackie Mac's burgeoning Hartt School of Music in the late 1980's. Since then, he has proven time and again that the trombone can be an instrument of beauty, subtlety, and tenderness- as he proves once again on track 4, Billy Strayhorn's "Day Dream." But that's not to say Davis can't burn- the first three tracks on the record showcase the kind of no-nonsense post-bop that the Young Lions generation is known for. I bet you didn't know you could love the trombone so much...
