Beginning in September, the Mark Filsinger Eleventet will host a special series at Flying Bison featuring top jazz artists from around the country, Don Menza, Steve Davis, Brendan Lanighan, and Brad Goode. The Mark Filsinger Eleventet is an exciting jazz ensemble featuring 11 of Buffalo's most celebrated musicians. The mid-sized ensemble combines the excitement and power of a big band with the creative and improvisational aspects of a jazz quartet.
Steve Davis is widely regarded as one of today’s leading improvisers on the trombone. His lyrical, hard-swinging style first gained him broad recognition during the 1990’s while working with the bands of jazz legends Art Blakey, Jackie McLean, Chick Corea’s Origin and the cooperative sextet, One For All. Steve has appeared in Downbeat Magazine’s Reader’s and Critic’s Polls numerous times, winning the TDWR (Rising Star) Trombone Category in 1998. Steve has also been recently nominated by The JJA four years in a row 2010-13 as Trombonist of the Year.
