Xavier Davis

Primary Instrument: Piano

Xavier Davis is an accomplished pianist, composer and arranger. His debut recording “Dance of Life” was released on Metropolitan Records in 1999. The CD features the talents of Don Braden, Dwayne Burno and Carl Allen. Xavier's compositions, “Dance of Life” and “The Plan Unknown,” appear on the CD along with his arrangements of some classic standards. “The pianist [Xavier Davis] simply knows how to make every note on his instrument sing, and he invariably finds the richest area of the keyboard for voicing his chords.” said writer Bob Blumenthal. Jazz Times reviewer John Murph reviewed the CD in the January/February 2000 issue of the magazine and said “...the music exudes a mature, nonchalant ease and cozy empathy that make this...a rewarding listen.” Down Beat gave the CD, “Dance of Life,” four stars in its January 2000 issue and said, “Davis steps out with an accomplished debut.” Xavier's second recording as a leader, “Innocence of Youth,” was released in April of 2002 by Fresh Sounds New Talent. It has also received excellent reviews. This CD features EJ Strickland on drums and Brandon Owens on bass as well as a number of Xavier's original compositions....
