Two unisued tracks for the first time on vinyl !!!! One of the first true moments of genius from saxophonist Nathan Davis – a mid 60s European session cut for the tiny SFP label – and a record that’s even rarer than his early classics for MPS! The sound here is similar to the MPS sides – a mixture of soul jazz and modal jazz – served up with a bit more freedoms than Davis might have gotten on the US scene, and featuring a lineup that includes Jimmy Gourley on guitar, Rene Urtreger on piano, Jimmy Woode on bass and Kenny Clarke on drums.
Recorded May 7th, 1965 at Studio de la Comédie des Champs-Elysées, Paris.
