Live London recordings from the trio of pianist Pat Smythe – a player you might know from his work with Joe Harriott in the 60s – joined here by a great guest star – the American tenor giant Eddie Lockjaw Davis! The setting is very open and fluid – longer live tracks that allow Eddie to really stretch out on his solos – in that maturing mellower tone that he really mastered in the latter half of the 60s – an approach that's even more subtle than his earlier records on Prestige, but which really yields a hell of a lot, once it draws you in! And although Pat's billed as the star here, the tunes are clearly a showcase for Davis' tenor talents – on long readings of "Days Of Wine & Roses", "I'll Never Be The Same", and "If I Were A Bell". Note that although Harold McNair is listed on the cover, he doesn't appear until volume 2! (Limited edition.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
