The gruff-toned tenor saxophonist Eddie “Lockjaw” Davis combined elements of modern jazz phrasing with mannerisms of the Swing Era tenor players, and his full-throated earthiness helped make him a star in the Count Basie Orchestra. But during the late 1950s, Davis co-led a combo with the Hammond organist Shirley Scott, whose soulful sound and approach complemented his own. They and trombonist Steve Pulliam dig in on the Stan Kenton classic “Intermission Riff.”
