Eddie Lockjaw Davis & Johnny GriffinBlues Up & Down/Griff & Lock ... CD
Milestone/Jazzland, 1960/1961. Used ... $6.99
During the early 60s, tenor giants Johnny Griffin and Eddie Lockjaw Davis teamed up to cut a series of monster LPs that are still defined today as some of the best examples ever of a twin tenor frontline! The records matched hardbop solo intensity with tight soul jazz grooving – and nobody was better equipped to handle such a combo as Griff and Lockjaw. Two of those great LPs are pulled together for this CD – Blues Up & Down and Griff & Lock, both originally issued for the Jazzland label, and darn hard to find. Rhythm is by either Junior Mance or Lloyd Mayers on piano, plus Larry Gales on bass and Ben Riley on drums. Titles include "Hey Lock!", "Midnight At Mintons", "Good Bait", "Oh, Gee", "Layin On Mellow", and "Leapin On Lenox". CD

✨✧ Eddie Lockjaw Davis/Johnny Griffin QuintetTough Tenors (aka Tough Tenors Again N Again) ... CD
MPS (Germany), 1970. Used ... Out Of Stock
A smoking twin-tenor session for MPS – one that reunites the mighty talents of Johnny Griffin and Eddie Lockjaw Davis! The album was done as an offshoot of both players' work for the Clarke Boland Big Band at the time – and the set was not only produced by CBBB impresario Gigi Campi, but also features a core rhythm trio from that ensemble – Francy Boland on piano, Jimmy Woode on bass, and Kenny Clarke on drums! Tracks are nice and long, and have a sound that really shows the evolution of both players since their famous recordings of the early 60s – tones that are even more modern and edgey at points, served up with a fire that hasn't died at all – and set loose on rhythms that move past the usual grooves you might have expected from their American sessions together. Titles include "Tin Tin Deo", "Jim Dawg", "Gigi", "When We Were One", and "Again N Again". CD
(Out of print, earlier jewel case pressing.)

Coleman Hawkins with Eddie Lockjaw DavisNight Hawk ... CD
Swingville/OJC, 1960. Used ... $14.99
Beautiful late work from Coleman Hawkins – mellow genius that wins us over time and time again over the years! The set's actually a twin-tenor outing – with both Hawk and Eddie Jockjaw Davis – the latter of whom, as proved with Johnny Griffin and others, is a perfect partner for any other player on his horn – one able to slide in just the right way, augmenting things and adding his voice while never overdoing it. Given the long tracks on the record, and the very easygoing rhythms from Tommy Flanagan on piano, Ron Carter on bass, and Gus Johnson on drums – you've got a cracker of a record, and one that yeilds more and more upon each new listen! Titles include "There Is No Greater Love", "Night Hawk", "In A Mellow Tone", and "Pedalin". CD

✨✧ Clarke Boland Big BandFire, Heat, Soul & Guts (aka Sax No End) ... LP
MPS/Prestige, 1968. Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
US issue of one of the best albums from Clark/Boland's big years on MPS – Sax No End! They got the title right on this one – because with Johnny Griffin, Sahib Shihab, Karl Drewo, and Eddie Lockjaw Davis as main soloists on the record, the sax never ends! The album's easily one of the most hard-burning 60s sessions from the legendary Clarke-Boland Big Band – and has that ensemble really cutting changes incredibly – working with a tremendous amount of power that not only comes from the sax soloists, but also from trumpet work by Benny Bailey, Idrees Sulieman, and Shake Keane – as well as the group's usual hard-slamming rhythm section of Francy Boland on piano, Kenny Clarke on drums, and Jimmy Woode on bass. The tracks are shortish, but get in plenty of great solo space – and are all originals for the session, with titles that include "Peter's Waltz", "Milkshake", "The Turk", "Sax No End", and "New Box".
