Straight No Chaser - A Jazz Show

Welcome to Straight No Chaser, the Award-winning Podcast hosted by Jeffrey Siegel

Aug 10, 2022

Podcast 926 completes my conversation with noted trombonist Steve Davis. Steve's latest album is a sextet release on the Smoke Sessions label called Bluesthetic, and it features Steve on trombone, Peter Bernstein on guitar, Steve Nelson on vibes, Christian McBride on bass, Geoffrey Keezer on keys and Willie Jones III on drums. 

In Part Two of our conversation, Steve talks about his times with the likes of Jackie McLean and Art Blakey, as well as his coming projects with the collective One For All.  Musical selections include the Davis composition "Fire Waltz" from One For All's album Incorrigible. The band is composed of Davis on trombone, Eric Alexander on sax, Jim Rotondi on trumpeter and flügelhorn, David Hazeltine on piano, John Webber on bass and Joe Farnsworth on drums.
