Two early 70s albums from Nashville brassman Danny Davis – back to back on a single CD! Travelin is a pretty unusual concept – a record
that mixes Nashville songs with some richer 70s orchestrations – using the trumpet of Danny Davis and his larger brass setting to create a very different sound for the songs! A few numbers have a bit of bluegrass acoustics mixed in with the horns, but others drop this out – and titles include "Are You Sincere", "Brassy Bluegrass", "Rocky Top", "Almost Persuaded", "Ramblin On", "Gotta Travel On", and "The Nashville Express". On Caribbean Cruise, Danny Davis & The Nashville Brass pick up a slight current of calypso, mix it with their brassy horns, and put the whole thing together with Nashville arrangements from Bill McElhiney! The whole thing's a bit unusual, but also makes for one of the fresher settings for the Davis group – on titles that include "Matilda", "Marianne", "Jamaica Farewell", "I Can See Clearly Now", "Mama Don't Want No Peas & Rice & Coconut Oil", and "Banana Boat Song".
