A NEVER-BEFORE RELEASED NATHAN DAVIS 1966/67 LIVE RECORDING
HAND NUMBERED STRICTLY EDITION, LIMITED TO 1,500 COPIES
AVAILABLE ON VINYL ONLY. NO CD, NO DIGITAL IS SCHEDULED.
These live sessions demonstrate the limitless invention of Nathan’s solos. Holding no punches, weaving signature phrases, shouts and riffs into his solos, he was a fierce and fervid performer. With a sort of hollow resonance at the heart of his reedy and warm sound, Nathan Davis was a highly original artist, from an era when having a distinct sound on your instrument was the grail of jazz artistry. Harold Land, Jimmy Heath, John Gilmore, Paul Gonsalves, Charlie Rouse, George Coleman, Booker Ervin, Clifford Jordan… Jazz is made of such giants and Nathan Davis was one of them.
