Although the engineering department is still working on a permanent fix, the Rifftides computer problem is mostly solved and we seem to be back in full operation (knock on wood). Let’s hope—and celebrate with Eddie “Lockjaw” Davis.
Here is the tenor saxophone master (1921-1986) at the Jazzhus Slukefter in Copenhagen a year before his death. Davis’s colleagues are Niels Jørgen Steen, piano; Jesper Lundgaard, bass; and Ed Thigpen, drums. The excellent video quality supports the full-screen mode for a close look at Davis in full flight in this exhilarating performance of Billy Strayhorn’s classic train song.
Enjoy your weekend, if it still exists in your time zone.
