On Monday, March 25, MSU Federal Credit Union will welcome jazz trombonist/composer Steve Davis as part of its Blue Mondays concert series, made possible by the MSU Federal Credit Union Jazz Artist in Residence Endowment.
Davis is widely regarded as one of today’s leading improvisers on the trombone. His lyrical, hard-swinging style first gained him recognition during the 1990s, and he has since appeared in Downbeat Magazine’s Readers and Critics polls numerous times, winning the TDWR (Rising Star) Trombone Category in 1998. He was also nominated as Jazz Journalists Association’s Trombonist of the Year four years in a row.
Davis has performed at such venues as Smoke and Smalls Jazz Clubs in New York City, The Greater Hartford Jazz Festival, Baltimore’s Eubie Blake Center, and the Richmond Jazz Society and Hartford Jazz Society.
Davis graduated in 1989 from The Hartt School’s Jackie McLean Institute (University of Hartford, CT). In 1992, he joined McLean’s sextet and began teaching alongside his mentor at both the Hartt School and Artist’s Collective.
