Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis always confounded critics. Because he was an acknowledged star to the soul-jazz idiom, they expected him to create in a somewhat formulaic setting, taking few chances. Jaws always took chances, and he always did things his way. And if that meant showcasing Shirley Scott by having a candelabra on her organ console, so be it. (Shirley may not have liked the idea, but it helped draw attention to her.)
After Scott left the band, Davis never really returned to the organ/tenor sound, despite his success with it.
