Trombonist Steve Davis leads a celebration of the music of J.J. Johnson, which he highlighted on his acclaimed recording Say When, with the core band from a more recent recording Correlations. Like the legendary J.J. Johnson, Davis navigates the challenges inherent in the language of bebop with seeming ease. JazzTimes says, “(Steve) has established himself as one of the most accomplished and lyrical improvisers on his instrument as well as a prolific composer. Downbeat says, “Davis thoughtfully balances modernism, lyricism and drive—as a writer and a player.” His “Correlations” features a fiery lineup including trumpeter Josh Bruneau, tenor saxophonist Wayne Escoffery, pianist David Hazeltine, bassist Gerald Cannon and drummer Jonathan Barber.
