b. 2 July 1973, Fairfield, California, USA. Avery’s 1st musical excursions had been on acoustic guitar when he was a decade old. 3 years later on, he turned to alto saxophone and performed in his junior senior high school music group. A little later on, now in senior high school, he produced a further switch, this time around to tenor saxophone, prompted through hearing information by John Coltrane and Dexter Gordon. Avery obtained bandstand encounter through sitting-in with going to music artists, among whom had been Artwork Blakey, Donald Byrd, Elvin Jones, Branford Marsalis and Wynton Marsalis. In his last year in senior high school, he analyzed with Joe Henderson, after that went to the Berklee University Of Music where he gained several prestigious honours including 1993’s Sony Invention Award. He produced his own-name documenting debut at age 20, a program which also confirmed his precocious compositional abilities. Obviously, Avery, who also has soprano saxophone, is certainly a highly appealing player and appears set to produce a significant tag on jazz within the twenty-first century.
