Whether or not it’s writing songs for the new Lee Fields album, touring with the Dap-Kings, or playing at the Ed Sullivan Theatre with Jon Batiste for the Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Trumpeter Chris Davis remains one of the most exciting (and busy!) musicians on the Canadian jazz scene.
Originally born in Louisiana with deep roots in Northeastern Florida, Chris has been an integral member of the Vancouver Jazz community for 20 years. For his Frankie’s After Dark debut, he’s proud to present his newest project: The Chris Davis Concern. This band consists of Vancouver stalwarts Adam Thomas on bass and Joe Poole on drums, and features three time Juno winner Brad Turner, sharing trumpet duties with Chris. This new take on the chordless Quartet will be playing selections from Black Codes From the Underground by Wynton Marsalis & Eternal Triangle by Freddie Hubbard & Woody Shaw, as well as originals by Chris and other jazz luminaries.
