Jon Davis – Moving Right Along

March 10, 2015 / No Comments / Tags: Jon Davis, Positone, Shinnosuke Takahashi,, Yasushi Nakamura


Pianist Jon Davis’ own gentle, cool style of swing is at the heart of his latest effort. Moving Right Along finds Davis leading a trio through a nice set of his own originals and a great selection of covers by John Coltrane, John Lennon and Paul McCartney, Thelonious Monk, Jaco Pastorious and Harold Arlen. As eclectic as that list might be, there is a consistency to Davis’ tone which threads it all together quite pleasantly. The rhythm section of Yasushi Nakamura on bass and Shinnosuke Takahashi on drums provide a nice structure underneath the keys that really works well with the top notes. A thoroughly entertaining recording.
