Wild Bill Davis / Jimmy Tyler / Dickie Thompson (1986)

As soon as he could afford the equipment, my friend, the late Otto Flückiger, used movies of musicians that he was fond of and that he himself or somebody else had filmed and made nice little movie clips from the footage. One example would be this short movie featuring the Wild Bill Davis Quartet at an unidentified location (possibly in switzerland). In between the footage of the band, Otto cut some N.Y.C. footage that he himself had filmed sometime in the mid-80s.

Personnel of Wild Bill’s quartet on this occasion: Jimmy Tyler (1919–1998) (as), Wild Bill Davis (1918–1995) (org), Dickie Thompson (1918–2007) (g), Clyde Lucas (1943–2010) (dr).
