(2-CD set) Wild’ Bill Davison was a fiery jazz cornet player who emerged in the 1920s, but did not achieve recognition until the 1940s. He is best remembered for his association with the bandleader Eddie Condon, with whom he worked and recorded from the mid-1940s through to the 1960s. His nickname ‘Wild Bill‘ reflected a reputation for heavy drinking and womanizing. His cornet style was generally hot and powerful, but could also be delicately melodic. This double CD features rare recordings from 1925 to 1960 and features many of the legendary musicians he performed with. Including Eddie Condon, George Brunis, Ralph Sutton, Jack Lesberg, George Wettling, Cutty Cutshall, “Peanuts” Hucko, Pee Wee Russell, Matty Matlock, Nick Fatool and many others.
