The first volume of THE EDDIE "LOCKJAW" DAVIS COOKBOOK is a potent dose of blues-based mainstream jazz. Accompanied by the soul-jazz organist Shirley Scott, Davis lays down lovely ballads ("But Beautiful"), mid-tempo cookers ("The Chef"), and high-octane wailers ("In the Kitchen") that should leave Davis fans, and those who relish smoky, late-'50s jazz of this stripe, salivating. Davis's bold, rolling tenor sax is in fine form here, and with its strong performances and song selection VOL. 1 arguably bests the two successive volumes. Still, anyone who digs what they hear on this set will certainly want to check out the others.
