John Daversa “gets sounds to come out of his little red trumpet like you never heard. The [John Daversa Progressive Big] Band itself ditto,” according to The Los Angeles Times.

Daversa is a versatile and respected performer, composer, arranger, producer, bandleader, and educator. He took an immediate interest in music at an early age, first through piano and voice, and later with trumpet and EVI (Electronic Valve Instrument).
