On February 20th & 21st the Club is happy to welcome to the helm, the warm, sensual styling of a Tenor Saxophonist extraordinaire.

He has been a featured Artist with such bands as The Clark Terry Big Band,The Clifford Jordan Big Band and The Barry Harris Big Band. His most recent record release as a Leader is titled Land Of Dreams", out in 2007 on the Smalls" Record Label, featuring: Tardo Hammer; Piano, Lee Hudson; Bass, and Jimmy Wormworth; Drums. The Club is proud to welcome this very special performer: Mr. Charles Davis and his Quartet.
Mintons' Playhouse, one of the holiest jazz landmarks in New York, re-opened in May, for the first time since 1974, but the music became noteworthy only a few weeks ago, when the club started booking better known players for Fridays & Saturdays. The Saxophonist Charles Davis was there over the Weekend, playing in a way that few musicians do anymore; he represents something as genuine, and worth celebrating as the club itself..." --Ben Ratliff, The New York Times
