Equinox Jazz, featuring saxophonist Jeremy Davis, is an organization that exposes this region to our state’s contribution to “America’s most original art form.” Equinox hosts concerts that are tremendously entertaining for listeners young and old.
It’s also a voyage into the history of America’s music heritage.
Davis relocated to Savannah in September 2005. As the leader of the 20 piece Equinox Jazz Orchestra, Davis has headlined theaters, festivals and music venues all across the country.
Davis’ work as the president of the Friends of Johnny Mercer allows him to pursue his passion for the great American songbook, tradition jazz standards and jazz education.
He has shared the stage with artist ranging from David Sanborn, Ellis Marsalis, Bill Watrous, Carl Fontana, Fred Wesley and Harry Waters to George Clinton, Govt Mule, Col. Bruce Hampton, Derek Trucks and many more.
Heavily influenced by Art Pepper, Sonny Rollins, Stan Getz, Stanley Turrentine, Jimmy Smith and Miles Davis, his Equinox Jazz small combos have been equally well received in Savannah and up and down the East Coast.
