“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 Woody Shaw on trumpet, Jean-Louis Chautemps on baritone sax, Rene Urtreger on piano, Jimmy Woode on bass, and Kenny Clarke on drums. The tight rhythm of Woode and Clarke is a nice counterpoint to the modernism of Davis and Shaw — Davis works a bit on soprano, which sounds especially great!” — Dusty Groove

Recorded May 6, 1965 at Studio de la Comédie des Champs Elysées. Paris.
