Wallace Davenport


World-renowned trumpeter, Wallace Davenport, was adept at a variety of styles in addition to the traditional jazz that he was most famous for in his native New Orleans. He played in brass bands as a young man; branched out into swing and bebop when jazz itself was changing, before returning to his roots in his later years. Davenport's resume reads like the history of jazz itself. The list of musicians he performed and/or recorded with include the Young Tuxedo Brass Band, Oscar “Papa” Celestin, Lionel Hampton, Count Basie, Ray Charles, Lloyd Price, the Zion Harmonizers, Earl “Fatha” Hines, Quincy Jones, Sammy Davis, Jr., Arthur Prysock, Phil Upchurch, and Frank Sinatra

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
