Jazz trombonist and Davis High graduate Jon Hatamiya will perform in Davis on Tuesday, July 8, with his New York-based band XD 7, as part of the group’s July tour of the West Coast.

The July 8 concert is at 8:30 p.m. at Third Space, 946 Olive Drive. Tickets are $10/$8 cover. Also appearing at the concert will be the Sacramento-based band CAVE Women.

While a high school student, Hatamiya was a standout with the DHS Jazz Band, and he (and his trombone) appeared in a poster for the Monterey Jazz Festival Next Generation Jazz Orchestra. After high school Hatamiya moved to New York to study at the Manhattan School of Music; he also performed with the Brubeck Institute Jazz Quintet, based out of the University of the Pacific in Stockton.

Hatamiya and XD 7 recorded its first album (titled “XD 7″) in 2012, and released a second recording “GET” in 2013. They performed in Davis as part of last year’s Fourth of July festivities. The group includes several members who were students at the Manhattan School of Music —Hatamiya graduated from Manhattan in May.

As a group, XD 7 combines jazz with rock, funk, R&B, electronica and contemporary classical styles, featuring what Hatamiya describes as “danceable groves, raucous energy and musical complexity… it’s ‘intelligent party music.’ ”

The various members of the band — all of whom are relatively young — have picked up some impressive credits during their careers to date, including performances with artists including Esperanza Spalding, the Dave Matthews Band, the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, Wynton Marsalis, Dianne Reeves and others, as well as opportunities to perform at well-known jazz venues including Yoshi’s San Francisco and Oakland, the Monterey and Montreal Jazz Festivals, and others.

XD 7′s 2014 West Coast tour starts July 1 in Seattle and work its way south to Los Angeles on July 16.

In addition to the Davis concert on July 8, the group will play at 9 p.m. Friday, July 11, at the Shady Lady, 1409 R St. in Sacramento.
