This release presents the complete Cookbook sessions by Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis in a quartet/quintet format with Shirley Scott on organ and, on some tracks, Jerome Richardson on flute, as well as tenor and baritone sax. This is the first time that all of this material is contained on a single set and in the order in which it was recorded. This set includes the complete contents of the original LPs The Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis Cookbook (Vols. 1 to 3; Prestige 7141, 7161 & 7219), Jaws (Prestige 7154) & Smokin' (Prestige 7301), plus all of the other songs from the sessions; and a quartet set by the exact same personnel (but with Scott on piano instead of organ) added as a bonus.
Take two blokes, two bikes, ample facial hair, a large dollop of adventure and garnish with infectious enthusiasm. But Dave Myers and Si King aren't trained chefs; they simply love food. Donning their leathers and helmets, the amiable pair travel across the world, learning to cook regional delicacies that are inextricably tied up with the cultures they visit.
Wooten and Bailey had recorded a wonderful CD which is a must for every bass player, they take the 4 strings and the 6 strings fretless and make unbelievable sounds and rhythms.
