Solo Flight

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
Although cornetist Wild Bill Davison sticks mostly to his typical repertoire during this spirited CD, the setting is a bit unusual. Davison is joined by both Denny Wright and Paul Sealey on guitars and bassist Harvey Weston, a similar instrumentation as Ruby Braff's popular group with George Barnes. Although the guitarists get their solos, it is the 75-year-old cornetist who is clearly the leader, showing that in 1981 he still had plenty of fire and emotion left. Highlights include "Blue Room," "I Never Knew," "You Took Advantage Of Me," "I Want to Be Happy" and two versions of "I Surrender Dear."
