Davy Lazar is a trumpet player, composer, and improviser living in Brooklyn, NY. Since moving from Detroit in 2017, he's been carving a formidable reputation as an unyielding & unique creative presence regarding both improvisational and compositional voice.
His compositions are riddled with intricate details of self-reference and logical mutation, and his improvisational tendencies "far outstrip typical trumpet material... with an extremely personal sound capable of a wide array of expression."
Davy currently leads and composes for three ensembles, Trio with Matt Mitchell and Kate Gentile, Pluto's Lawyer (duo with Kate), and Hematorsion (duo with Anna Webber). He's also a member of Mitchell & Gentile's co-led project, Snark Horse.
