Davis, Eddie “Lockjaw” & Shirley Scott
Prestige, 2003, CD
Jazz Ruler Type: Kool
O’s Notes: This marriage of raspy tenor sax with the cookin’ soulful Hammond B3 is something special, especially with the relentless drive of these two headliners. Add the Latin flavors created by Ray Barretto and Luis Perez on congas and bongo and you’ve got a transformation of tunes that otherwise may fade into obscurity. This 1959 session is alive and kicking.
