Wild Bill Davis is the father of the Hammond organ in Jazz Music. As a legendary sideman with the likes of Johnny Hodges, Duke Ellington, Illinois Jacquet, Milt Larkin, Louis Jordan, Lionel Hampton and others, as well as a composer and arranger for Louis Jordan, Count Basie etc, he also lead his own groups and toured regularly. Here we present a rare glimpse of Will Bill Davis' own group, performing live during the later part of his career. Here we have his regular trio group, with Clyde Lucas on drums and Chuckie Thompson on guitar and vocals, augmented by a then very young, alto sax & clarinetist Joey "G-Clef" Cavaseno as well as sax & clarinetist Bill Easley. Sonny's Place was a legendary Jazz club in Seaford, Long Island (New York) which at the time attracted many New York City artists or those who may have been traveling through the area.
