while i think that you simply cannot go wrong with eddie ‘lockjaw’ davis, ever, i was a bit skeptical about sax, organ, guitar and drums.  well, ok, not very skeptical about the drums and i do like organ music more than i used to.  but no: it’s a corker of a show alright, and ‘plan a’ was quite right: you can’t go wrong etc etc.  sadly these guys are all gone now.  shared on dime by ‘cosmikd’ in march this year.

update:  rather bizarrely, a few minutes after posting this, i was browsing through the jazz postings on past daily, and ran across this same show from a posting that gordon skene put up there back in july.  that site is worth a good browse, regularl.  although mr. skene only seems to post mp3/128 (why?), he’s got a lot of great stuff, particularly (for me) old jazz radio broadcasts from the 30’s, 40’s and 50’s.  it’s a patreon-funded site, which is an interesting concept (and yes, actually, i do fund a few sites in a small way, including past daily).
