St. Louis native Jeremy Davenport is a jazz trumpeter and vocalist now based in New Orleans.
Davenport, 42, grew up in a family of musicians. His mother was a music educator for nearly 50 years and his father recently retired from the St. Louis Symphony.
Davenport’s performances harken back to a time when Jazz was at its peak popularity though his unique style and mood of storytelling creates a modern edge.
This weekend, however, will mark the 12th year in a row in which Jeremy Davenport has returned home to perform at Jazz at the Bistro the Friday and Saturday following Thanksgiving.
Host Steve Potter talked with Davenport about his career and return to St. Louis.
