Hartt's Steve Davis on Grammy Winning CD
Hartt School faculty member Steve Davis and his former Hartt student, James Burton, both played in the trombone section and were featured soloists on Christian McBride's newly minted Grammy winner for Best Large Jazz Ensemble CD, The Good Feeling (Mack Avenue Records). Davis also organized the trombone section for the recording.
Arts Fuse also had great things to say about Davis's solo work on Chick Corea's The Continents CD. "Steve Davis, always a soloist worth paying attention to, is so good throughout this recording that one wishes for a jazz trombone concerto to give him a full-bore showcase. His tone strikes a perfect balance between jazz personality and classical purity. Just when you think he can't top his solo in the second movement, back he comes with an even better one in the fourth. (Not to mention his beautiful solos on disk two, especially on "Blue Bossa" and "Just Friends," where he extends the harmonies fearlessly.)" Read the entire review.
