Description

WILD BILL DAVISON In Copenhagen This is the best CD Wild Bill Davison has recorded in Denmark, due in part to the choice of material, with its avoidance of Dixieland war horses. Davison is in excellent form throughout, blasting out powerful solos in Am I Blue, Ghost Of A Chance, and Memories Of You, which combine some of his familiar effects with unexpected melodic twists. But Beautiful and Here’s That Rainy Day show Davison at his most restrained, his solo work on the latter being particular sensitive. It is hard to believe that he was in his sixty-ninth year at the time of this recording, for there is no hint of advancing age here. Wild Bill Davison is truly an original stylist, with an approach to his work that recalls a long past rumbustious era.
