Wild Bill Davison: That's A Plenty

Wild Bill Davison on Swing City Radio

Just before the holidays I did my rounds of the local used record stores looking for music to feature on the station.  There are times I go out looking and come back empty handed.  That's just how it goes sometimes.  But this trip I found many interesting records.  One of those records is "That's a Plenty" by Wild Bill Davison.  For those of you that are unfamiliar with Davison, he was a fantastic cornet player that started out in the 1920's but didn't start to make an impact until the early 40's.  He also had a reputation for heavy drinking and womanizing, hence the nickname "Wild Bill."

This album features many great musicians including Pee Wee Russell and Eddie Condon.  Davison plays both the cornet and trumpet on different tracks on this album.  If you like your Big Band music to have a dixieland feel to it, then you'll enjoy this record.  You can hear the songs "That's A Plenty", "Panama", "Muskrat Ramble" and "Clarinet Marmalade" right here on Swing City Radio.
