September 2, 1932 June 2, 1990)

Every jazz story is unique, but Davis' more than most.

Davis recorded with Max Roach and performed with Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie and became the pianist and composer-arranger for Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers.

Then in the 1960s in this 30s he left music and became a tailor, painter and designer.

Fortunately for us, he came back in the late 1970s and performed with Sonny Rollins and again with the Jazz Messengers.

He was also a much sought after sideman for recordings by Kenny Clarke, Sonny Criss, Jackie McLean, Pierre Michelot, Archie Shepp and many others.

Davis was a serious student of the music of Bud Powell and Thelonious Monk.
