Malay Tone Poem

"Snake Davis has one of the most passionate sax styles heard in these Isles for a while." TIME OUT

"A virtuoso saxophonist" DAILY TELEGRAPH

Expect saxophonic fireworks from one of the great, and without doubt, one of the most recorded of British saxophonists. Snake has always managed to combine technical flair with r’n’b passion and stands comparison with the great soul/jazz artists such as David Sanborn, Grover Washington and Wilton Felder (The Jazz Crusaders). His blues inflected sound has earned him those high profile gigs with the likes of Ray Charles, Tina Turner, Soul II Soul, Chaka Khan and of course Motorhead. You will have also heard him on recordings with Cher, M People and Paul McCartney and if you like going to the cinema, you may well have heard his playing on scores of scores eg Sting, Richard Niles, Dave Stewart etc etc. 

Snake is regularly on the road in the UK and elsewhere. In late 2009, he completed a month long tour of Japan with megastar Japanese rocker Eikichi Yazawa; the last 12 months has seen Snake continue to tour in Europe and the UK, promoting his latest album, ‘Snake Davis Live!’. For this gig, the Spin Trio expands to a quartet as we are joined by the exceptional Pete Whittaker on keyboards. Should be a great night.
