A 2014 recipient of the prestigious Brian Boak Bursary, saxophonist Angela Davis follows up her critically acclaimed debut album The Art Of The Melody with a second release entitled Lady Luck (Nicholas Records), featuring an outstanding line-up of musicians and a delightful set of music.
Here, Davis uses talented arranger Steve Newcomb who creates beautiful arrangements for quartet + strings. The jazz quartet features the award-winning Dan Tepfer on piano, bassist Linda Oh and drummer Richie Barshay. The stunning string quartet is made up of some of the most in demand musicians in New York City – Sara Caswell and Joyce Hammann on violin, violist Lois Martin and cellist Noah Hoffeld.
Angela has recently been appointed the position of Lecturer of Jazz at the James Morrison Academy of Music at Uni SA. The school, located in Mt Gambier, South Australia, offers a 3-year Bachelor of Music degree, with an additional Honours year to follow.
The academy offers a unique experience to aspiring musicians where they can work with some of the finest jazz educators in the world. It is performance-based education at its best, where students don’t just learn ABOUT music, they learn how to MAKE music.
