Trumpeter Chris Davis was born in 1982 in Lake Charles, Louisiana and arrived in Vancouver in 2003. He has since established himself as a formidable presence on the scene, having appeared with many of Vancouver's best players and as part of the Morgan Childs Quintet. He cites Dizzy Gillespie as his major influence and his love of the bop and hard-bop traditions are evident. He won the CBC's Galaxie Rising Star Award last year and earlier this year released his first album as leader, A Night Remembered, on Cellar Live.
