Jackie McLean nicknamed trombonist Steve Davis Stevie-D. McLean got him his first major gig in New York with Art Blakey and Davis hasn't slowed down yet. With 20 albums as leader and over 100 as sideman to such giants as Chick Corea, Horace Silver, Jackie McLean, Freddie Hubbard, and too many more to mention, his performance at Norfolk, Virginia's Attucks Jazz Club was welcomed by a sold out house eager to hear this great player. Backed by the John Toomey Trio, Toomey on piano, Jimmy Masters on bass and Brian Jones on drums, Davis and company swung through two one hour sets of newly arranged standards, some of own compositions and exciting improv. The good time the musicians were having was contagious and the 135 fans would have been happy with another hour's set. Following are photos from the gig.
