Marc Myers’ JazzWax reviews Joe Magnarelli “Three on two”…

leave a comment

http://www.JazzWax.com/2016/01/21-new-cd-discoveries.html Joe Magnarelli: Three on Two (Posi-Tone). A gentle hard bop album is always welcome on my end. I love Joe’s fleshy, round trumpet tones, which express pure love for the instrument. Here, with Steve Davis (tb), Mike Dirubbo (as), Brian Charette (org) and Rudy Royston (d), “Mags” plays even more beautifully than usual on ...Read More

Peter Hum covers Steve Davis “Gettin’ It Done”…

leave a comment

blogs.ottawacitizen.com Trombonist Steve Davis’ latest disc, his second on that post-bop flagbearer of a label Posi-Tone, is loaded with keen, well-crafted music for a no-nonsense, at times Blakey-style sextet. Kicking off the CD is an incisive three-horns arrangement of John Coltrane’s 1961 piece Village Blues. Davis, alto saxophonist Mike DiRubbo, the brash-young trumpeter  Josh Bruneau, ...Read More

Bruce Lindsay chimes in on Steve Davis “Gettin’ It Done”…

leave a comment

http://www.allaboutjazz.com/php/article.php?id=42443 Calling trombonist Steve Davis a veteran is probably inappropriate—after all, he was a mere 44 year-old when he recorded Gettin’ It Done in October, 2011. However, he has such a wealth of experience, such a command of his instrument and such a rich back catalog of recordings that based on his body of work rather than his birthday such a ...Read More
