Get Directions

#var:page_name# cover

A three-time GRAMMY nominated trumpeter/composer and finalist in the Thelonious Monk International Jazz Competition, Daversa leads the John Daversa Progressive Big Band, which is one of the leading forces in modern jazz today. Junk Wagon: The Big Band Album (2011) won Best in Show and Awards of Excellence in Creativity/Originality and Production at the Global Music Awards. Daversa’s latest big band release, Kaleidoscope Eyes: Music of the Beatles (2016), reverently twists and melts the iconic Beatles songbook with a 40+ orchestra featuring vocal artists Renee Olstead and Katisse Buckingham.
