Pianist and composer Jon Davis has been performing and touring with many of the finest jazz musicians around world for more than twenty five years. He has appeared on over 45 recordings, and has contributed compositions to many of them. Although perhaps most widely known for his association with the legendary bassist, Jaco Pastorius, which along with drummer Brian Melvin, led to the critically acclaimed Brian Melvin - Standards Zone trio record, Jon has shown a rare versatility ranging from solo, to Big Band, and everything between. He spent eight years as the house pianist at the Four Seasons Hotel in Manhattan, while maintaining a faculty position at The New School of Social Research.
In his debut CD from Venus Records of Japan, Davis delves deep into the blues, not strictly in terms of structure, as he chose a variety of well-known standards that do not conform to the blues form, but more in terms of the spirit and moods. The program starts with a soulful and even a bit funky rendition of "Beautiful Love" and includes such highlights as the beautiful "Moon River" and the bouncy "Mr. Lucky." A very well-executed, romantic piano trio album!
