Reade Street Records is sad to share that the great, Charles Davis has passed. 


This label was started to promote Charles' music and I'm so fortunate to have known such a great man, a great friend. Over the years, I've slept on his couch, met up numerous times in Europe, listened to endless classic jazz tales, ate plenty of sushi, planned lots of "the next" music projects and introduced him to my wife (and kids as they were born), laughed plenty, talked about life, Lori and how to live life to the fullest.


Charles was humble, kind, caring, funny and a very important person in my life. I will miss you Charles. Thank you for all that you have been for me and the world. Your music will continue to live on and inspire.


I hope you will honor Charles' memory and listen to your favorite recording of him.
