Description

In 1949, Davis began recording on the Hammond Organ as a single (Mercury 8136) and with Louis Jordan in 1950 (Tamburitza Boogie). Wild Bill Davis worked for Louis Jordan from 1945 to 1951, playing organ on his “Tamburitza boogie” (Decca 27203) and “Lemonade” (Decca 27324), (the latter a cover of a 1949 Eddie Mack recording for Apollo, featuring Willis Jackson, Mack’s colleague from Cootie’s band) both feature Wild Bill Davis on organ and Bill Doggett on piano! They were recorded on 18 Aug 1950, and are available on the Ocium compilation of Wild Bill Davis’ early work – “Organology vol 1 – April in Paris”.
