Composer/trumpeter John Daversa, fresh from his trifecta win at the 2018 Grammy Awards, brings his creative juice to Saddleback College’s Spring 2019 Jazz Day before taking the McKinney Stage on Saturday evening. This concert features music from his most recent recording, "American Dreamers: Voices of Hope, Music of Freedom,” which won in every category for which it was nominated: Best Large Jazz Ensemble, Best Instrumental Arrangement (on “Stars and Stripes Forever”) and Best Improvised Jazz Solo (on “Don’t Fence Me In”).
"This is art. this is what music should be. No re-creation. No mimicking. Just honesty. fearless honesty." - Terence Blanchard
