Capitol Records Mono 1956
"Man," says Jackie Davis, "I feel like I'm playing an orchestra!" And anyone listening
can readily understand. A Hammond electric organ is, technically speaking, nothing more than a Hammond electric organ. But with Jackie Davis at the keyboard, many unusual, sweet-sounding and full-swinging things begin to happen.
In this, his first album for Capitol, Jackie's splendid sounds are recorded in High Fidelity.
But there's still another kind of high fidelity that's caught in the record—Jackie's
discriminating taste in material and his easy ability to handle everything from sweet
and lovely to good-humored and swinging. Here are the melodies of Harold Arlen,
Vernon Duke, Harry Warren and other topflight popular composers.. To each Jackie
gives his special attention, his special interpretation.
Complementing Jackie and his organ are the substantial rhythmic contributions of
Ernest L. (Fats) Clark on drums and the guitar etchings of Irving Ashby.
