Straight Ahead

Sealed - Brand new vinyl from Eddie Davis.

A perfect example of Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis' playing, this superior quartet set (a Pablo date that has been reissued on CD) features the tough-toned tenor swinging hard on standards, showing his warmth on ballads, and coming up with inventive ideas within the swing/bop tradition. With sterling support by pianist Tommy Flanagan, bassist Keter Betts, and drummer Bobby Durham (Ella Fitzgerald's trio at the time), Lockjaw sounds at his best on such numbers as "Lover," "On a Clear Day," and even "The Good Life."
