    Find Wild Bill Davis credit information on AllMusic. With the dynamic, swirling sounds of his Hammond B-3 organ, Wild Bill Davis provided a bridge from the big band swing of the s and '40s to the organ-driven R&B of the s and early '60s.

    This CD is an extraordinary sampling of the antics of Wild Bill Davis on the Hammond B-3 organ, as collected from five albums on the Everest label. With all of the renewed interest in jazz organ lately—Tori Amos listening to vintage Jimmy Smith sessions, etc.—this is a timely reissue.

    Bill Jennings () is considered one of the founding fathers of what came to be known as “soul jazz,” recording with artists ranging from Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Jordan, but mostly associated with grooving juke joint combos, as exemplified by a previous 2-CD set released by Fresh Sound Records a couple of years ago.

    Wild Bill Davis was the top cat among organists prior to the rise of Jimmy Smith in He could be credited for taking the instrument from the swing era into the R&B infected jazz of the early ‘50’s, and was a pioneer in the organ trio format. He could swing like crazy, grind out dirty blues, or could play in a laid back easy listening.

    Wild Bill Davis (24 November –17 August ) was the stage name of American jazz pianist, organist, and arranger William Davis. Davis was born in Glasgow, Missouri. He is best known for his pioneering jazz electronic organ recordings and for his seminal four-year tenure with the Tympany Five, the legendary backing group for Louis Jordan.

    Bucky Pizzarelli CDs are always a treat, and this studio date is no exception; the seven string guitarist is joined by his son John Pizzarelli (also a fine guitarist), plus veterans Lynn Seaton on bass and Bernard Purdie on drums. The opener is a gently swinging take of organist Wild Bill Davis' "Azure Te" (strangely credited to cornetist Wild Bill Davison instead), which also has some.
