These recordings were made at the Nice Jazz Festival in 1978 where, due to the array of stars performing, everything was ideal for having high quality music. The result is astounding. Each track is truly great and the same can be said about each individual musician making it impossible to decide who played best. They are all completely complementary. Eddie Lockjaw Davis has two distinctive facets: on a slow tempo, his tone is warm and mellow. On a fast tempo his playing becomes driving and rough toned. Listen to Lover Come Back to Me where, for more than twelve minutes Lockjaw and Illinois Jacquet share a formidable exchange. The session with J.C. Heard and Vic Dickenson, which lasts for an impressive 30 minutes, with beautiful solos from Lockjaw and Dickenson. Brazil, played on a calypso style or Errol Garner’s Misty were Davis proves again and again the scope of his talent.
