James Davis Quintet

  • James Davis, trumpet
  • Dave Miller, guitar
  • Rob Clearfield, piano
  • Matt Ulery, bass
  • Quin Kirchner, drums

This quintet of prominent Chicago musicians have collaborated on many projects, each as a leader, composer, or band member; but this three-day residency features new music composed by trumpeter James Davis and it’s a drastic departure from his most recent album, Beveled.

“Chicago trumpeter James Davis did well in choosing the name Beveled for his new sextet: the compositions are carefully etched, with subtle angles and incisions, and the unique instrumentation surrounds them with layer depth. It’s the equivalent of carved wood frames in warm colors.” —Neil Tesser, chicagomusic.org
