The quiet lead from the front is in the shape of trumpeter Jack Davies. Davies' continuing relentless passion for learning and achieving is always evident, no performance being the same, the audience being allowed the briefest of insights into his continuing journey. He has a beautiful tone, a thorough understanding of the tradition and of the trumpet greats before him not to mention an unrivalled passion for all things jazz that shows itself left, right and centre.
