Birmingham, UK: Hornblower Productions is thrilled to announce the release of the latest album from saxophonist, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist, Alvin Davis. Make A Stance is available worldwide on May 18, 2019.
The latest in a long string of well-received albums, Make A Stance is composed of 11 original tracks and features Davis’ spin on ‘Walk in The Night’ from the legendary blues-and-rhythm act Junior Walker and The All Stars. The album showcases music that is a seamless blend of saxophone melodies and rhythm and beats— a soulful expression of values in a troubled world. The forthcoming album will also see Davis expanding his style and discography by venturing into genres such as soul dance and rhythm and blues funk.
Of his most recent endeavor, Davis says: “In this day and age of fuelled hate, maybe it is time for us to express our feelings and try to rediscover our human bonds. Music has given me another vessel to express myself and reach out to people. Through my melodies, I can continue to bare my soul and connect to my fans.”
Performing since the age of 13, Alvin Davis has become a household name when it comes to jazz. A master of his craft, his music combines an array of influences from smooth jazz and reggae to soul, rhythm and blues, house and modern pop. He has performed in concert with stars the likes of Maxi Priest, Edwin Starr, The Foundations, Neville Staples, Alton Ellis, Ken Booth, Dennis Alcapone, Macka B and Dennis Bovell.
Davis released his first studio album, the soul-baring debut Let It Blow, in 1992. The album was a huge commercial and critical success that climbed to third place on American Adult Contemporary Charts and drew praises from notables such as Bill Clinton, Arsenio Hall, and the international superstar, Prince.
Of his eclectic album Ash, Soul and Dance, Soul Trade has said: “…full of vibe, musicianship and integrity… He is not afraid to use some new sounds and phrases giving it that ‘‘new age depth’’…moods, original, uplifting and almost spiritual in places…”
He has also drawn comparisons with the iconic Miles Davis: “Alvin Davis’s fusion comes straight off Sanborn… Alvin doubles on muted trumpet, producing a good impression of Tutu-era Miles…” Jazz The Magazine, The Observer.
Alvin Davis will join fans to officially launch Make A Stance on May 18, 2019 at the Birmingham Repertory Theatre, Centenary Square, Broad Street, Birmingham, United Kingdom. Make A Stance will be available on iTunes, Google Play and Amazon Music after May 20th, 2019.
