Jesse Powell • The R&B Years

Artist Biography by Michael Erlewine
Texas tenorman Jesse Powell was born February 2, 1924. There is very little biographical information about his early years, other than his working with Hot Lips Page, Louis Armstrong, and Luis Russell. He joined Count Basie's Band in 1946, replacing the great sax player Illinois Jacquet, which says something about his abilities.

Powell appears on a number of blues recordings in the late 1940s with people like Brownie McGhee, Willie Jordan, and Doc Pomus. He also worked with Champion Jack Dupree and continued to play jazz, touring France with Howard McGee in 1948. He played bop and recorded with Dizzy Gillespie in 1949. During the 1950s, as bebop fell out of favor, Powell found steady work with a variety of R&B artists.

He recorded as a leader for Federal in 1951 and 1953 and had established himself with the Josie label by 1954, which included groups like the Cadillacs. His R&B work included a number of singles, and studio work with Atlantic/Atco in the late 1950s. His work can be seen on the classic single "Mr. Lee," by the Bobbettes, where he takes the tenor solo.

Powell was back recording jazz in the early 1960s. In 1961, he recorded Party Time for a subsidiary of Prestige. In his later years, he worked in Harlem and made only a few recordings.

Biografía del artista por Michael Erlewine
El teniente de Texas Jesse Powell nació el 2 de febrero de 1924. Hay muy poca información biográfica sobre sus primeros años, aparte de su trabajo con Hot Lips Page, Louis Armstrong y Luis Russell. Se unió a Count Basie's Band en 1946, reemplazando al gran saxofonista Illinois Jacquet, que dice algo acerca de sus habilidades.

También trabajó con el campeón Jack Dupree y continuó tocando jazz, recorriendo Francia con Howard McGee en 1948. Tocó bop y grabó con Dizzy Gillespie en 1949.

Hank Marr • Hank Marr Sounds From The Marr-Ket Place

Hank Marr (30 January 1927 – 16 March 2004) was a soul jazz and hard bop Hammond B3 organist and pianist born in Columbus, Ohio, probably best known for his many albums recorded under his own name for the Double-time record label.

Columbus natives Hank Marr and (Tenor Saxophonist) Rusty Bryant co-led a group that toured for several years (beginning in 1958 going into 1960’s). Later, Marr led a group that featured Electric Guitarist/Singer James Ulmer. Ulmer first recorded professionally with Marr in 1964. Ulmer later toured Europe under Marr in 1966-1967.

As a sideman, Marr made a name for himself playing with many accomplished musicians. In the late 1960s, Marr performed in a duo with guitarist Floyd Smith (musician) in Atlantic City, NJ.

Marr had two minor hit singles, "Greasy Spoon" (U.S. No. 101, 1964) and "Silver Spoon" (U.S. No. 134, 1965).

Si Zentner • Big Band Brilliance!

From Wikipedia:

Simon Hugh "Si" Zentner (June 13, 1917 in New York City – January 31, 2000 in Las Vegas, Nevada) was an American trombonist and jazz big-band leader.

Zentner played violin from age four and picked up trombone a few years later. As a teenager, he was awarded the Guggenheim Foundation Philharmonic Scholarship. He attended college for music and had intended to pursue a career in classical music, but became more interested in pop music after recording with Andre Kostelanetz. Zentner played in the bands of Les Brown, Harry James, and Jimmy Dorsey in the 1940s, then moved to Los Angeles, where he worked as a studio musician. He also landed a job with MGM from 1949 to the mid-50s, and was involved in the music for films such as Singin' in the Rain and A Star Is Born.

In the late 1950s Zentner put together his own studio big band and signed with Bel Canto Records. The Zentner band began recording for Liberty Records in 1959 releasing numerous successful pop/jazz albums during the 1960s and touring steadily with a large well-rehearsed outfit. He also briefly recorded for RCA Victor. Zentner was a tireless promoter and claimed to have played 178 consecutive one-night performances when the band was at its peak. His ensemble was voted "Best Big Band" for 13 straight years by Down Beat, and Zentner himself was voted Best Trombonist in Playboy Jazz Readers' Poll. Zentner was known for his bold, brash and bright playing with great breath control and distinctive vibrato. In 1962, his album Up a Lazy River (Big Band Plays the Big Hits, Vol. 2) (arranged by Bob Florence) won a Grammy Award for Best Pop Instrumental Performance.[2]

Zentner's success was thoroughly unusual; he had a thriving big band going at a time when big band music was, for the most part, on the wane. The general downturn in interest eventually caught up to him, and by mid-decade the orchestra performed only on a limited basis despite recording through the late 1960s. He then moved to Las Vegas and accompanied Mel Tormé at the Blue Room of the Tropicana Hotel. In 1968 he became musical director of the long-running Vegas show Folies Bergere. It wasn't until the 1990s that Zentner returned to big band performance, assembling a new group and releasing several more albums. He suffered from leukemia late in life, though he continued performing into 1999; he died of the disease in early 2000.

Chester E. Smith is a respected musician, talented performer and exciting addition to today's jazz scene, particularly in the bay area where he now makes his home. Early in his career known as "Jazz Machine," Chester opened for the Larry Coryell Show in Philadelphia to a full house of adoring fans.

He was technical consultant to electronic organ manufacturers, and the late jazz organist Jimmy Smith (no relative). He designed his own touring/recording organ called the FOX Special.

One of Sweden's top jazz pianists, Bengt Hallberg made his first trio recordings when he was 17. In the 1950s, he recorded with Lars Gullin, Arne Domnerus, and such traveling Americans as Clifford Brown, Stan Getz, and Quincy Jones. He worked as a member of the Swedish Radio Big Band (1956-1963), and, although in demand as a writer for films and television, Hallberg has continued playing jazz on a part-time basis (often with Domnerus and Karin Krog), mostly recording for Swedish labels such as Metronome, Sonet, and Phontastic.

VA • Mississippi Saxophone

Offering a wide range of sounds in a small, inexpensive, novice-friendly package, the harmonica played a key role in the development of the blues, a sound that continues to resonate in the modern blues world. The compilation Mississippi Saxophone: The Great Blues Harmonica Players reviews this history, covering artists who helped define the harmonica blues sound as well as those who continue its legacy.

Taking a dual-minded approach, the collection focuses on artists known for their techniques - Big Walter Horton's colorful solos, Sonny Boy Williamson II's warble-like hand effects, Little Walter's punchy amplified sounds - while traveling from the title state (Charlie Musselwhite) to Chicago (James Cotton) and across the pond to the U.K. (Giles Robson). /Chrysta Cherrie, AllMusic

Horace Parlan • Us Three

Us Three, featuring pianist Horace Parlan, bassist George Tucker and drummer Al Harewood, is one of Blue Note's greatest trio albums. The piano-bass-drums trio has long been the most compact of all jazz combos, a complete orchestra with just three pieces. Some trios have been completely dominated by its pianist including the Oscar Peterson and Art Tatum Trios. The trio on Us Three is a bit different for it features three superior jazz men who constantly play off of each other, communicating immediately and telepathically in sensitive yet funky interactions. Horace Parlan, already well known at 29 and a member of the Lou Donaldson Quartet, was perfect for the trio format in 1960. His soulful chordal style matches very well with the subtle contributions of Tucker and Harewood. There are some very memorable originals and the trio makes some superior standards sound as if they were written for them. The members of "Us Three" seem to think as one and the resulting music (which has sonics never before realized on any other issues) is classic.

Quartette Trés Bien • Boss trés bien

The Quartette Trés Bien was an American jazz combo based in St. Louis led by pianist Jeter Thompson. The group started to play around 1960 and began recording in the mid '60s. Jeter Thompson played with Jimmy Forrest, Oliver Nelson and Emmett Carter in his early years. The bassist of the group is Richard Simmons, the drummer Albert St. James who accompanied also Charlie Parker, Tab Smith and Jimmy Forrest. Percussionist Percy James added a latin flavor to the quartette who played more than ten years, before splitting. Jeter Thompson is still active leading for a few years the Trio Tres Bien with brothers Harold Thompson (bass) and Howard Thompson (drums).

Sam Lazar • Soul Merchant

 Sam Lazar (born 1933) was a pianist and Hammond organist originally from St. Louis, Missouri. His first LP on Argo Records approximates his birth year as 1933. Initially a pianist, Lazar played in Ernie Wilkins group before Wilkins left St. Louis to join Count Basie. This was followed by a stint in George Hudson's big band which also included Clark Terry and Jimmy Forrest at various times. After a tour with alto saxophonist Tab Smith, Lazar was in the army from 1951-1953. Upon discharge, he began studying medical technology. In the early 1950s, Lazar had an exchange of letters between a Mr. Brueckel, who's first name is unknown. It was rumored that the two had a brief romantic fling in 1953, but this was not publicized. However, during the period he was in contact with Mr. Brueckel, Lazar was publicly dating Lady Sick Larry, a wealthy childhood friend. In 1958, Lazar saw the Jimmy Smith trio at the Peacock Alley club in St. Louis and was inspired to play the Hammond organ and return to music. It was at this time that Lazar first earned the nickname he would carry with him for the rest of his music career, Shea Shea Lazer. His St. Louis-based organ combo later included guitarists Grant Green, Joe Diorio, George Eskridge, drummer Chauncey Williams and saxophonist Miller Brisker among others. Not only did the group play a variety of gigs from strip clubs to jazz clubs, but they were reportedly one of the first interracial combos in the area. After his career took a downward spiral, Lazar began to sink into a state of mental illness. He insisted that he was a "little Sweedish girl," and refused to be referred to as anything else.

After a single on Cawthron Records, Lazar went on to record several albums in the 1960s for the Chicago-based Argo Records. His first, Space Flight, was recorded in 1960 and added bassist Willie Dixon to his regular working combo featuring Williams and fellow St. Louis musician Grant Green. [wiki]

VA • Anthology Of The Twelve String Guitar

Editorial Reviews
One of the most influential recordings in the entire Tradition records catalog, the 1963 LP Anthology of the Twelve String Guitar is a treasured artifact that has been relished by generations of guitar fans as one of the cornerstones of recorded guitar history. The great 12 string guitarist Leo Kottke, among many others, has often cited this album as being one of the first records that made him aware of the possibilities of the instrument and was most influential in developing his own style. The guitar players assembled for this wonderful record are all superstars in their own right among them Glen Campbell, the king of all West Coast session guitarists Howard Roberts, the great Mason Williams (Classical Gas), Roger McGuinn (The Byrds), Country Music super-session players Joe Maphis and Bob Gibson, and the unique Billy Strange.

Jay Hoggard • Rain Forest

Jay Hoggard (b. September 24, 1954, Washington, D.C.) is an American jazz vibraphonist.
Jay Hoggard was raised in a religious family. He was born in Washington, D.C. but grew up in Mount Vernon, New York. His mother taught him how to play piano at a young age. At age 15, Jay started to play the vibraphone.
Hoggard first played piano and saxophone before picking up vibraphone. He played with Anthony Davis and Leo Smith in the early 1970s in New England, and after moving to New York City in 1988, he worked again with Davis and with Chico Freeman, Sam Rivers, Cecil Taylor, James Newton, and Kenny Burrell. Since then Jay has performed with famous vibraphonists Lionel Hampton, Milt Jackson, Tito Puente and Bobby Hutcherson. He has collaborated with Kenny Burrell, Billy Taylor, James Newton, Hilton Ruiz and Oliver Lake.
Hoggard has played in venues in Africa, South America, Europe, Asia and the Caribbean. In the United States he has performed at the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C., the Lincoln Center in New York City, and the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture also in New York City. Jay has performed at numerous jazz festivals including St. Lucia, Montreux, Mount Fuji, Pori and Hartford, CT. He has appeared on television on CBS Sunday Morning and BET Jazz.
Hoggard has recorded many dates as a leader, including several that have been commercially successful in the U.S. He graduated from and is currently Adjunct Professor at Wesleyan University.

Review by Scott Yanow
Jay Hoggard's lone date for Contemporary (reissued as an OJC CD) was one of the vibraphonist's finest early sets. The music (all six songs are Hoggard originals) falls into the area of advanced hard bop. Chief among the sidemen are Chico Freeman (heard on tenor, soprano and bass clarinet), keyboardist Kenny Kirkland, and colorful percussionist Paulinho Da Costa; two songs utilize three vocalists, and there is a strong African feel to some of the ensembles.

Paul Desmond • Take Ten

Review by Richard S. Ginell
Now listeners enter the heart of the Paul Desmond/Jim Hall sessions, a great quartet date with Gene Cherico manning the bass (Gene Wright deputizes on the title track) and MJQ drummer Connie Kay displaying other sides of his personality. Everyone wanted Desmond to come up with a sequel to the monster hit "Take Five"; and so he did, reworking the tune and playfully designating the meter as 10/8. Hence "Take Ten," a worthy sequel with a solo that has a Middle-Eastern feeling akin to Desmond's famous extemporaneous excursion with Brubeck in "Le Souk" back in 1954. It was here that Desmond also unveiled a spin-off of the then-red-hot bossa nova groove that he called "bossa antigua" (a sardonic play-on-words meaning "old thing", which laid the ground for Desmond's next album and a few more later in the decade. Two of the best examples are his own tunes, the samba-like "El Prince" (named after arranger Bob Prince), an infectious number with on-the-wing solo flights that you can't get out of your head, and the haunting "Embarcadero." Hall now gets plenty of room to stretch out, supported by Kay's gently dropped bombs, and he is the perfect understated swinging foil for the wistful altoist. There is not a single track here that isn't loaded with ingeniously worked out, always melodic ideas.

The Jazz Crusaders • The Thing

The Crusaders, llamados originalmente The Jazz Crusaders. es un grupo norteamericano de soul jazz, jazz fusión y funk, creado en 1961 y que han editado más de 40 álbumes.

El grupo "The Jazz Crusaders" fue formado por el trombonista Wayne Henderson, el saxofonista Wilton Felder, el teclista Joe Sample y el baterista Stix Hooper, a los que se unieron el guitarrista Roy Gaines y el contrabajista Jimmy Bond, en 1961,1 aunque ya con anterioridad habían trabajado juntos, llegando a grabar un par de singles, bajo el nombre de "The Nite Hawks". Todos ellos eran originarios de Houston (Texas), aunque residían en California, siendo muy activos en la escena de jazz de la Costa Oeste. Su primer disco se llamó The Freedom Sound y fue publicado por el sello Pacific Jazz, que sería su compañía hasta 1969. El estilo del grupo, en esta época, oscilaba alrededor del funky jazz.
Época de mayor éxito.

En 1971, al escorarse su música hacía el r&b y el pop, mofidicaron su nombre eliminando la palabra "jazz" y adoptando un estilo más cercano al funk, incorporando a la banda al guitarrista Larry Carlton y al bajista Robert Popwell. La nueva tendencia crossover de la banda, hizo que sus discos comenzaran a aparecer en las listas de ventas de Billboard, consiguiendo su mayor éxito con el álbum "Street life" (1979), que consiguió alcanzar el nº 36 en el Billboard Hot 100, y su single entró en el Top 10 de R&B. Durante su época de mayor éxito, The Crusaders trabajaron como músicos de respaldo a un gran número de artistas, como Marvin Gaye, Steely Dan, Donald Fagen o Joni Mitchell.

En 1975, Henderson dejó la banda para proseguir su carrera como músico y como productor discográfico. Más tarde, 1983, Hooper también abandonó al grupo. Estos cambios modificaron la línea musical de la banda, que acabó por desaparecer a comienzos de la década de 1990. Sin embargo, en 1995, Wayne Henderson, junto a Wilton Felder y Larry Carlton, rehizo la banda para grabar una serie de discos, bajo el nombre nuevamente de "Jazz Crusaders", aunque con poca relación musical con el grupo original. La banda vuelve a deshacerse a comienzos de la década de 2000.

En 2003, serán Joe Sample y Stix Hooper, junto con Felder, quienes revivan al grupo para grabar un disco, en el que intervienen como guitarristas Eric Clapton y Ray Parker, bajo el nombre de "The Crusaders". La banda no publica más discos, pero en 2010 se produce una reunión de Sample, Felder y Henderson (sin Hooper), para realizar una gira. Wiki


The Crusaders were an American music group popular in the early 1970s known for their amalgamated jazz, pop, and soul sound. Since 1961, forty albums have been credited to the group (some live and compilations), 19 of which were recorded under the name "The Jazz Crusaders" (1961–1970).

In 1960, following the demise of a few short-lived Houston-based groups called The Swingsters and the Nite Hawks, Joe Sample (piano), Stix Hooper (drums), Wilton Felder (saxophone), and Wayne Henderson (trombone), relocated to Los Angeles, CA. After changing their name to "The Jazz Crusaders," the group signed with Pacific Jazz Records, where they would remain throughout the 1960s. Employing a two-manned front-line horn section (trombone and tenor saxophone), the group's sound was rooted in hard bop, with an emphasis on R&B and soul.

The group shortened their name to "The Crusaders" in 1971, and adopted a jazz-funk style.They also incorporated the electric bass and electric guitar into their music. Bass guitarist Robert "Pops" Popwell and guitarist Larry Carlton joined the band, and featured on the group's albums throughout most of the 1970s. With this new style came increased crossover appeal, and the group's recordings started to appear on the Billboard pop charts. The height of the group's commercial success came with 1979's Street Life, with Randy Crawford as featured singer, which peaked at No. 18 on the pop album charts and the title track from the album made the Top 10 on the R&B chart and No. 36 on Billboard′s Hot 100 chart.

In 1975, following the release of their 28th album (their ninth as The Crusaders), Henderson left the group to pursue a full-time career as a producer. His departure created a void, permanently changing the character of the group. Another founding member, Hooper, left the group in 1983, thus signaling the end to the group's most popular period. Three more albums were recorded in the mid-1980s; however by the 1990s, The Crusaders, for the most part, had disbanded, with a comprehensive discography behind them.

In 1991, The Crusaders (with Sample and Felder the only original members present) released Healing the Wounds. The album peaked at No. 1 on the Top Contemporary Jazz chart and No. 174 on the Billboard 200. The group did not release any more albums during the decade, as Sample focused on a solo career.

Henderson, who had left the group in 1975, revived the "Jazz Crusaders" moniker (despite Sample's objections) for 1995's Happy Again. The lineup for Happy Again included founding member Wilton Felder and former Crusaders guitarist Larry Carlton. The new Jazz Crusaders released a series of recordings in the late 1990s, but the music bore little resemblance to the acoustic, hard bop style of the original group, instead emphasizing synthesizers, sampling, electronics, and drum machines in the style of smooth jazz, rap music, or contemporary R&B.

In 2003, founding members Sample, Felder and Hooper revived The Crusaders and released Rural Renewal. Ray Parker Jr. and Eric Clapton played guitar on the album. That same year, the Henderson-led Jazz Crusaders released Soul Axess.

In April 2010, Joe Sample announced a reunion tour with Wayne Henderson and Wilton Felder (but not Stix Hooper) - the first reunion of these founding members of the Jazz Crusaders since 1974. Henderson died on April 5, 2014. Joe Sample died in Houston on September 12, 2014.[3] Felder died on September 27, 2015.  Wiki

Regina Carter • Paganini After a Dream

Info ...

The title of this project is aptly-named. Regina Carter, a Detroit-born, classically-trained jazz violinist, traveled to Genoa, Italy in December, 2001, and performed on Paganini’s legendary Guarneri violin nicknamed “the Canon.” After winning the hearts of the skeptical Italians, with armed gunmen surveying her every move, Carter played flawlessly, and became the first jazz musician and African-American to the play the instrument. The next year, Carter returned to Genoa, recorded on Paginini’s violin and performed a pleasing program of crossover-friendly light classics, South American compositions, a movie tune, and original works. Produced and arranged by Jorge Calandrelli and Ettore Strata, and backed by a combo led by pianist Werner “Vana” Gierig, the selections, while not exactly groundbreaking, successfully show off Carter’s impeccable and soulful playing, and the violin’s rich and reverent tones. An 18-piece orchestra supports Carter on Ravel’s “Pavane pour une infante defunte,” Piazzolla’s “Oblivion,” and Ennio Morrricone’s Cinema Paradiso theme. Borislav Strulev’s cello co-stars on Luiz Bonfa’s “Black Orpheus (Manha de Carnaval)” and Faure’s “Apres un reve.” For Debussy’s “Reverie,” Carter delivers some straight-ahead swing. In sum: She came, she saw, she conquered and, she swung. –Eugene Holley, Jr.

Quartette Trés Bien • Boss trés bien

The Quartette Trés Bien was an American jazz combo based in St. Louis led by pianist Jeter Thompson. The group started to play around 1960 and began recording in the mid '60s. Jeter Thompson played with Jimmy Forrest, Oliver Nelson and Emmett Carter in his early years. The bassist of the group is Richard Simmons, the drummer Albert St. James who accompanied also Charlie Parker, Tab Smith and Jimmy Forrest. Percussionist Percy James added a latin flavor to the quartette who played more than ten years, before splitting. Jeter Thompson is still active leading for a few years the Trio Tres Bien with brothers Harold Thompson (bass) and Howard Thompson (drums).

Roy Brown-Wynonie Harris • Battle Of The Blues-Vol 2

Review by Stephen Cook
The second round of King's Battle of the Blues series features another healthy dose of tracks by Roy Brown and Wynonie Harris. And while more academically minded fans will want to first check out the wealth of earlier classics these two singers cut in the '40s, this roundup of '50s material will still provide a fine introduction to both of these giants. Again, Brown kicks things off with a side of his smooth yet powerful uptown blues; showing a deft pen, he sticks to a set of top-notch originals. Harris might not have written much of his own material, but he does show why his was one of the most incendiary and impassioned voices around, especially on the confessional "Drinking Blues." A perfect accouterment to your next after-hours shindig.

Baby Face Willette • Stop and Listen

Stop and Listen was the last session that organist Baby Face Willette made for Blue Note. He came in with guns blazing on Lou Donaldson's Here 'Tis, made his and Grant Green's debut recordings, and then this fiery trio album in May 1961. Willette was an earthy, exciting player and he, Green, and Ben Dixon would have become one of the premier organ trios in jazz had he stuck around. This great album includes three standards (one a bonus track), four originals, and Nat Adderley's "Work Song." The whole affair cooks from first tune to last. Remastered by original recording engineer Rudy Van Gelder from the original analog masters.

Milt Buckner • Send Me Softly

Shakey Jake Harris • The Key Won't Fit

Born James D. Harris, 12 April 1921, Earle, Arkansas, USA, d. 2 March 1990, Pine Bluff, Arkansas, USA. A professional gambler when not playing harmonica (his nickname was derived from the crapshooters' call "Shake 'em, Jake", Harris began playing in Chicago blues bands during the late 40s. His 1958 single "Call Me If You Need Me"/"Roll Your Moneymaker", recorded for the Artistic subsidiary of Cobra Records, featured guitar work by his nephew Magic Sam. During the 60s he recorded two albums that did not do him justice, as club recordings with Sam make evident. His encouragement of younger musicians brought about the recording debut of, among others, Luther Allison, with whom Jake recorded his best album after moving to Los Angeles. In later years, occasional recordings appeared, including some on his own label, and Harris ran a blues club for a while, but was dogged by poor health and isolated by neighborhood gang violence.
Excellent album on the small Murray Brothers label from 1983. Backing from Rod Piazza, Jr. Watson and Hollywood Fats among others.

Wild Bill Davis • Free, frantic and funky

Wild Bill Davis, fue un músico excepcional y un virtuoso del órgano Hammond, un instrumento claramente influenciado y utilizado en las iglesias norteamericanas. Podemos decir sin lugar a dudas que Wild Bill Davis es junto al excelente organista, Milt Buckner, uno de los músicos mas brillantes de este instrumento. Wild fue músico puente entre las orquestas de la época del swing y los sonidos negros del Rhythm & Blues de los años cincuenta y sesenta. Él fue junto al guitarrista, Floyd Smith y al batería Chris Culumbus quienes primero formaron un combo de jazz con el órgano de por medio.

Sus primeros comienzos como músico fueron como guitarrista en 1939 en la banda de Milt Larkin' donde actuaban como pareja de saxofonistas el gran Eddie Cleanhead Wilson y el maestro Arnett Cobb. El primer guitarrista de de la banda era el magnifico Freddie Green. En 1945 se pasó al piano con el quinteto de Louis Jordan y su grupo denominado "Louis Jordan's and Symphony Five" desde donde producían arreglos para músicos de la talla de Duke Ellington o Count Basie. Precisamente con este ultimo colaboró en los arreglos del celebérrimo tema de Basie titulado "April in Paris".

Admirador del sonido del piano y del órgano del maestro Fats Waller, Wild Bill Davis, empieza a ensayar en sus actuaciones con el órgano Hammond y consigue ser un virtuoso del instrumento dominándolo a la perfección. Sus actuaciones con Johnny Hodges o Paul Gonsalves todavía son recordadas. Ya en los años setenta la aparición de organistas básicos en el jazz como Jimmy Smith o Bill Dogett lo eclipsaron de los escenarios y murió prácticamente olvidado por todos.

Wild Bill Davis (November 24, 1918 – August 17, 1995) was the stage name of American jazz pianist, organist, and arranger William Strethen Davis.

Davis was born in Glasgow, Missouri. He is best known for his pioneering jazz electronic organ recordings and for his tenure with the Tympany Five, the backing group for Louis Jordan. Prior to the emergence of Jimmy Smith in 1956, Davis (whom Smith had reportedly first seen playing organ in the 1930s) was the pacesetter among organists.

Davis originally played guitar and wrote arrangements for Milt Larkin's Texas-based big band during 1939–42, a band which included Arnett Cobb, Illinois Jacquet, and Tom Archia on horns. After leaving the Larkin orchestra, Davis worked in Chicago as a pianist, recording with Buster Bennett in 1945. He played a crucial role as the pianist-arranger in Jordan's Tympany Five (1945–47) at the peak of their success. After leaving Jordan, he returned to Chicago for a time, recording again with Buster Bennett and working with Claude McLin. After switching from piano to organ, Davis moved to the East Coast. In 1950, he began leading an influential trio of organ, guitar, and drums, which recorded for OKeh.

Davis was originally supposed to record "April in Paris" with Count Basie's Orchestra in 1955 but when he could not make the session, Basie used his arrangement for the full band and had a major hit.

In addition to working with his own groups in the 1960s, Davis made several albums with his friend Johnny Hodges, leading to tours during 1969–71 with Duke Ellington. In the 1970s he recorded for the Black & Blue Records label with a variety of swing all-stars, and he also played with Lionel Hampton, appearing at festivals through the early 1990s. Davis died in Moorestown, New Jersey.
