Criss Cross Jazz 1248 CD

Steve Davis Quintet

Meant To Be

Available: April 20, 2004

For his sixth Criss Cross album, trombonist Steve Davis, also known for his work with Chick Corea, Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers, and the group One For All, shares the front line with Tom Harrell's tenor saxophonist Jimmy Greene.
In the rhythm section, pianist Xavier Davis, bassist Dwayne Burno, and drummer Nasheet Waits.
Davis displays his customary buttery sound and understated propulsion; his seven originals are harmonically hip and unfailingly melodic.
