In his long-running group with Shirley Scott, Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis realized his vision of what an organ/tenor combo could achieve. Miss Scott’s taste and light touch on the organ made it possible for Davis to avoid the battering-ram approach and produce music of restraint and taste without sacrificing drive and excitement. In Arthur Edgehill, he had a drummer who met all requirements. And when he added George Duvivier on bass and Jerome Richardson on flute and tenor for the Cookbook sessions, the results were two of the most popular and perennially undated albums in the Davis discography. Volume 1 is OJCCD-652-2.
