Trevor Davis’ Jazz Affair
Hartford Public Library’s highly-popular Baby Grand Jazz Series returns for its 19th season in 2022 with a spectacular line-up of the best jazz musicians in the region. If you can’t make it in person, tune in virtually on Hartford Public Library’s Facebook Page or YouTube channel.
By age 17 Trevor was playing drums professionally five nights a week with a regionally successful rock band, one of whose members went on to lead the Saturday Night Live studio band and serve as band director for David Bowie, Bob Dylan and George Harrison (GE Smith). After a year of steady gigs, it was on to study and record jazz with a big band at Johnson State College, now Northern Vermont University, and following that a period of freelancing back in central Connecticut when he played live and studio sessions and with dozens of different bands at every imaginable venue from clubs to country clubs to country western clubs, and the full range of private social events. During this period he also played with Michael Bolton, and later managed and played with a leading Connecticut band, Fountainhead. He currently plays with multiple jazz and Dixieland bands, and for the Baby Grand Jazz Series will be focussed on beautiful melodies, using Connecticut’s own Doug Schlink on piano, Steve Bulmer on double bass, John Smayda on reeds and Ricky Alfonso on trumpet.
