“Think of it as Chicago’s answer to the fluid, jazzy musically challenging hip-hop of The Roots...” - Chicago Tribune
“For hip-hop fans who’ve had their fill of urban grit and flashy bling, the innovative rhymes of The J. Davis Trio might be your thing. Intertwined with soul and jazz, These Things Happen is a laid-back, beat-laden record featuring cool horns and emotive strings that complement the truly awesome rhymes perfectly. - Illinois Entertainer
