From early days as a young New-Orleans-Jazz trombonist with aspirations to a life in music--instead veering through decades away from the horn--ALLEN DAVIS only recently jumped full-bore into the plan God had in store for him...

...a newfound, amazing career emerging in both jazz and classical idioms.

So the story unfolds: jazz big band and improvisational solo appearances... arranging, composing, and performing in liturgical settings...large-scale symphonic performances...

...and the list goes on.

A very personal journey with the trombone has evolved into an exhilarating search...delving into fresh modes of interaction with audience and other musicians. Always with a drive to pass something learned of God's message along to others.

Keen to apply and develop his abilities in traditional as well as new musical settings and instrumental collaborations, he is eager to join like-minded musicians in this quest.

Each step ahead poses a now-familiar question:

"What's next?"
