LP - 180g Audiophile vinyl.
Audiophile vinyl reissue of Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis and his quartet's 1983 SteepleChase LP, which included pianist Kenny Drew.
Magnificently iconic tenor player to come out of the post-swing era, Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis (1922-1986) cut two albums for SteepleChase during his later years.
This album was recorded in 1983 in Copenhagen and earned superlative reviews all over the world.
"Tenorman Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis had already been a potent force in jazz for 35 years when he recorded this set but as it turned out his SteepleChase date (his next-to-last session) was one of the strongest of his career. Accompanied by a trio led by pianist Kenny Drew, Lockjaw really tears into these standards which are highlighted by "I Only Have Eyes for You," "There Is No Greater Love" (the alternate version was released for the first time on its CD reissue), "Four" and the title cut. Davis was at the peak of his powers during this recording, making this SteepleChase outing one of his very best."
- Scott Yanow, AllMusic
"Nothing valedictory about this date. No signs of decline. It's hard to believe it was Jaw's last album as a leader. Just the thing if you didn't miss your water until your well went dry." - Cadence
