Davis trombonist Jon Hatamiya got a shout-out of support this month from celebrated jazz musician Wynton Marsalis.

In the Aug. 1 issue of JET Magazine, Marsalis is interviewed by Clarence Waldron about the current state of jazz.

“Marsalis says the dedicated rising stars of jazz are chasing the music and not necessarily the fame,” Waldron writes. ” ‘Like our country, we are in need of more integrity and deeper commitment to the art,’ Marsalis insists.”

Marsalis then lists 16 young musicians — pianists, saxophonists, bassists, trumpeters, trombonists and drummers/percussionists — in a list titled “Wynton’s Picks: Who’s Got Next.” Among them is Hatamiya, a 2010 graduate of Davis High School who is a student at Manhattan School of Music in New York City.

Hatamiya has been turning heads in the music industry for a couple of years, In January 2010, he was invited to play in the Grammy Jazz Ensemble in Los Angeles, and wound up as part of an octet behind recording artist Dave Matthews on the televised Grammy Awards show.

In April 2010, he took part in Monterey’s Next Generation Jazz Festival, which features young performers. His picture — eyes closed, blowing his trombone, the slide extended — was featured prominently in the festival’s publicity.

Local residents have one last chance to hear him perform, along with fellow Davis High alum Colin McDaniel, a drummer, on Sunday at JazzSchool, 2087 Addison St. in Berkeley. The Hatamiya-McDaniel Group will perform at 4:30 p.m. A $10 cover charge will be collected at the door.

For more information, call the club at (510) 845-5373 or visit www.reverbnation.com/hatamiyamcdanielgroup.

    I'm currently working with another of Wynton Marsalis's picks, Alphonso Horne, and I can confirm he is the real deal!
