"Outlook" is Steve Davis' twelfth recording as a leader. He's also a very talented composer and arranger. 2006, the year Mission was recorded, was a very productive year for Steve. In February, One For All recorded their CD "The Lineup." Steve also played on two big band recording projects in 2006, first with Jimmy Heath, and then with John Fedchock. Sandwiched in between his June and November "Outlook" sessions, he also recorded with Larry Willis.
Some of Steve's combo charts from the One For All recordings are available from Second Floor Music at MusicDispatch.com.

Steve Davis is widely regarded as one of today's leading improvisers on the trombone. His lyrical, hard-swinging style first gained him broad recognition during the 1990s while working with the bands of jazz legends Art Blakey, Jackie McLean, Chick Corea's Origin and the cooperative sextet, One For All. Steve also followed in his mentor Curtis Fuller's footsteps by joining saxophone legend Benny Golson and The New Jazztet in 2008. Read more...
