Pianist and composer Jon Davis has been performing and touring with many of the finest jazz musicians around the
world for over 30 years. He has appeared on over 50 recordings, and has written hundreds of compositions. Although
perhaps still most widely known for his association with the legendary bassist, Jaco Pastorius, Davis has
shown a rare versatility ranging from solo, to big band, and everything in between.
Since returning to NYC in the early 90's, Davis has worked constantly in every imaginable setting. He was house pianist for the
jam sessions at The Blue Note, lead a session in the early days of Smalls, as well as a five year steady engagement at
Sweet Basil with tenor saxophonist Ilhan Ersahin (NuBlu club founder). Davis toured in Turkey frequently
as part of Ersahin's quartet, which led to recordings featuring Eddie Henderson, Larry Grenadier, and Brian
Blade. Currently, Davis is leading gigs at many of New York’s finest jazz venues such as the Kitano Lounge, Mezzrow, the Knickerbocker, Smalls, Fat Cat, and is in demand as a studio sideman.
