More Wild Bill Davis in Rheinfelden (1986) (part 4)

Not much has been happening on this blog here for quite a while, I know. I have been through a period of very bad luck starting when I broke my nose and elbow while stumbling over a piece of wire after a DJ gig. Right after that the bad news from people very near and dear to me did not stop coming in.

So I am only now finding my way back to matters jazz and blues again.  I thought I’d start softly with part 4 of the 120 minute private video of a concert Wild Bill Davis gave at the Hotel Schützen in Rheinfelden, Switzerland on (probably) April 13 1986. The other members of Davis’ quartet were saxophonist Jimmy Tyler, the legendary Dickie Thompson on guitar and drummer Clyde Lucas.

I still do not know who filmed this footage. If someone who was involved in the making of this video reads this, I would like to hear from you so I can give proper credit.

So here you get – after some talking – the Wild Bill Davis Quartet playing

- “Honeysuckle Rose” which featrures Dickie Thompson

- Neil Hefti’s “Cute”

- “Satin Doll”

There will be still more to come from this concert – if nobody objects.

Until then:Enjoy!

  1. I’m really sorry about your accident and misfortunes. Glad that you are safe and back with Wild Bill.

  2. Hello @ Crownpropeller
    thank you very much for the films of the Wild Bill Davis Quartet. I was there in Rheinfelden at the age of 17, but still have the flyer (let me know if you want a scan). And yes, the concert was at the Hotel Schützen in Rheinfelden, Switzerland on April 13 1986, from 3 to 5 PM, therefore the daylight.
    Kind regards from Zurich, Thomas
