About the Artist(s)

2023 marks the 10 year anniversary of a 30 gig, 28 day tour that resulted in Weeds’ Let’s Go album. The tour started in Portland, Oregon and ended up at Smoke Jazz Club in New York City where the band recorded live!

Trumpet legend Freddie Hubbard says “Steve is one of the greatest Trombone Players in the world. I’ve played with a lot of them including Slide Hampton, Curtis Fuller and J.J. Johnson, and Steve is one of the best.”

Steve has released 20 albums including: Think Ahead (2017), Say When (2015), For Real & Gettin’ It Done (2014) featuring his longtime musical colleagues Larry Willis and Nat Reeves along with drummer Billy Williams, saxophonists Abraham Burton (For Real), Mike DiRubbo and trumpeter Josh Bruneau (Gettin’ It Done), in addition to over 100 recordings with names including: Chick Corea, Freddie Hubbard, Horace Silver, Cedar Walton, Hank Jones. In 2018 his original composition “Optimism” was included in Christian McBride’s Grammy Award winning album “Bringin’ it”. Steve Davis’ latest release with his sextet “Correlations” (label: Smoke Sessions Records) Steve features Joshua Bruneau, trumpet; Wayne Escoffery, tenor saxophone; Xavier Davis, piano; Dexron Dougles, bass; Johnathan Barber, drums; Caro Baptista, percussion on “Batista Revenge”.
