Jeremy Davenport @ Jazz at the Bistro, St. Louis
Jeremy Davenport was born in 1970. His parents are musicians -- his mother a teacher, and his dad a trombonist with the St. Louis Symphony. Davenport himself was training on the trumpet when something special happened. He met Wynton Marsalis, then studied with Ellis Marsalis at the University of New Orleans, and then became the youngest member in the big band of Harry Connick, Jr. These days, Jeremy and this band play weekends at the French Quarter Bar in the Ritz-Carlton, New Orleans.
You might also catch Davenport on Emeril Live on the Food Network. Jeremy's a versatile guy. He loves to play Jazz @ the Bistro, and a non-profit organization with the mission of bringing St. Louis back to the forefront of jazz, with a world class club and program of education and community outreach. New talent Jeremy Davenport and classic Ellia and Stevie: you'll enjoy this program, from top to bottom!
