James Davis Quintet
James Davis' Quintet features many of Chicago's most exciting Jazz musicians and his own compositions. The players of this group of prominent Chicago musicians have collaborated in many varied projects, each as a leader, composer, or band member. This group features music composed by James Davis, as a drastic departure from his recent album Beveled. "
The Quintet's last release is from a live recording at The Whistler in Chicago from a 3-night residency in January 2016, released by The Whistler via bandcamp.
...James' horn playing is full, confident yet subtle; his work as a player matching his strong abilities as a composer." - jazzchicago.net
