Daversa's fearless exploration..takes him off the beaten path as he creates bold and ballsy big band music for the modern epoch.” .
Tony Gieske—Los Angeles Times
 
Internationally renowned trumpet player, performer, composer, arranger, bandleader and educator John Daversa has received the most impressive new credit to his resume to date—three-time GRAMMY® nominee, for his widely critically acclaimed and perhaps most ambitious musical undertaking --  THE DAVERSA PROGRESSIVE BIG BAND'S RECORDING, KALEIDOSCOPE EYES: MUSIC OF THE BEATLES

KALEIDESCOPE EYES explores the vast catalog of The Beatles through Daversa's imaginative, genre-fusing arrangements. It highlights a cast of 60 brilliant musicians from big band to jazz choir and strings, as well as featured renowned vocalists Renee Olstead and Katisse.

In additional to receiving three GRAMMY® nominations, the critically-acclaimed album was also awarded seven Global Music Awards 




KALEIDOSCOPE EYES is John’s fourth studio album and third released on BFM Jazz.  His first studio album as a sole leader was Live at Catalina’s.  Junk Wagon: The Big Band Album on BFM  was released in 2011 to high critical acclaim, winning Best in Show and Awards of Excellence in Creativity/Originality and Production in the Global Music awards.  This was followed by Artful Joy in 2012, which featured Gretchen Parlato and Bob Mintzer.  As an educator, he is currently Chair of the Department of Studio Music and Jazz at the prestigious Frost School of Music at the University of Miami, where he also conducts the award-winning Frost Concert Jazz Band. Daversa joined the Frost faculty in August 2013. He previously taught at California State University, Northridge (CSUN) and University of Southern California (USC). He is a winner of the Herb Alpert Award, David Joel Miller Award, the National Trumpet Competition, the ITG Jazz Soloist Competition, and was a finalist in the Thelonious Monk International Jazz Competition. His distinctive musical perspective has been a passport to performances on world stages such as The Today Show, Late Night with David Letterman, The Oprah Winfrey Show, Monterey Jazz Festival, Montreal Jazz Festival, Montreux Festival, and the Playboy Jazz Festival, to name a few.  He has also performed or recorded with artists such as Fiona Apple, Burt Bacharach, Michael Bublé, Dori Caymi, Joe Cocker, Andraé Crouch, Sheryl Crow, Dr. Dre, Bob Mintzer Big Band, and The Yellowjackets..

Daversa recently performed the KALEDISCOPE EYES Show featuring Renee Ostead at Catalina Jazz Club in Hollywood CA on Dec. 11 to a SRO crowd. 

Upcoming shows include:
  • January 15 – The Baked Potato—Studio City, CA/Daversa Big Band

“To take classic Beatles music and find a way to perform them inside his own world with a perfect blend of paying homage, while still being himself, is an amazing accomplishment!  ……Terence Blanchard
