Newstalgia Downbeat with Illinois Jacquet and Wild Bill Davis live at Birdland in New York City - August 12, 1952
Back over to Birdland in New York this week for a set by Jazz legends Illinois Jacquet and Wild Bill Davis, each with their respective groups. The sets were broadcast as part of the Stars In Jazz series on NBC Radio in August of 1952.
Both Jacquet and Davis are in top form and the only problem is, they aren't at least an hour each - sadly, just fifteen minutes from each performer. But with history you have to take what you can get. And what's there is pretty tasty.
