Jack Davies

Having completed his classical training at the Royal Northern College of Music, Jack is currently studying jazz trumpet at post-graduate level at the Royal Academy of Music in London.

Jack studies jazz trumpet with Gerard Presencer, Nick Smart and Pete Churchill. At the RNCM, he was a regular member of the RNCM Big Band with who he played with such figures as Norma Winstone, Colin Towns, and Chris Potter.

In his second year at the RNCM he won the college's solo brass competition, the Goronwy Evans Brass Prize, and in his third year was awarded with the Terence Greaves Prize for Big Band Composition (for his work with The Sound of the North Big Band)

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.
