and the Wild Bill Davison Legacy
Call of the Wild
the CD Jacket:
" 'Wild Bill's' prime gifts to jazz will always be remembered
by future generations of musicians influenced by his
distinctive style. I am sure that his proudest endowment
is his band's continuing heartfelt affection and admiration.
These are the men who worked with 'Wild Bill.' They traveled
with him, learned from him, and were inspired by him;
they benefited greatly from Bill's encouragement and
assistance. These are tunes they played with him in saloons,
on concert stages, and at festivals in the US and Europe.
Many of these musicians are leaders in their own right.
Yet, these artists of world class stature proudly unite
to sustain their mentor's image. In these capable hands,
the '... fire will burn on and on!' That is unquestionably
'Wild Bill' Davison's greatest legacy!"
