CD submissions accepted! Guest writers always welcome!!

I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

The Huckle-Buck - Lem Davis with Buck Clayton

Lemuel A. Davis American jazz saxophonist, born 22 June 1914 in Tampa, Florida; died 16 January 1970 in New York City. In addition to playing with bands led by Coleman Hawkins, Rex Stewart, and Eddie Heywood, Davis led his own band featuring Emmett Berry on trumpet, Vic Dickerson on trombone, and Dodo Marmarosa on piano. After recording with jazz vocalist Billie Holiday as a member of Heywood's band in 1944, Davis went on to record with John Kirby, Joe Thomas, and Eddie Safranski. Although he reached his apex in the 1940s, Davis continued to perform in the New York area during the 1950s. He appeared on an album recorded during a jam session with influential trumpet player Buck Clayton. Unable to make the transition from swing to bebop, Davis faded into obscurity. If you support live Blues acts, up and coming Blues talents and want to learn more about Blues news and Fathers of the Blues, ”LIKE” ---Bman’s Blues Report--- Facebook Page!
