Bryan Davis is a trumpet player, originally from the UK, now residing in New York City, USA.
He received his formal musical training at Leeds College of Music but considers "the road" as his true education. With 20 years of professional experience to his credit, Bryan continues to learn from the thousands of musicians he has performed with around the world. His trumpet teachers include J. Brian Brown, Richard Iles, Dick Hawdon, Gerard Presencer, Brian Lynch and Roger Ingram.
In his early career, Bryan Davis had long associations with a number of groups, ranging from the National Youth Jazz Orchestra of Great Britain, to nightclub band Jazz Amiga and salsa group Casa Latina All-Stars. The latter, in particular, afforded him a busy period in the late ‘90s where he performed with most of the greatest ‘Latin' bands in the UK, as well as visiting groups from the USA and South America. These included Jesus Alemany, Cubanismo, Sierra Maestra, Jimmy Bosch, Isaac Delgado, Roberto Pla, Robin Jones and King Salsa, and Salsa Celtica. In addition, he played support gigs for Tito Puente and Tania Maria.
