Who do you think of when the subject of the Hammond organ in jazz comes up? If you had asked us here at AVID a while back we would have probably shouted Wild Bill Davis, Bill Doggett or Jimmy Smith! However that was until we discovered an unsung genius of the Hammond organ through an enthusiastic jazz listening customer who pointed us towards a certain Mr Jackie Davis. Himself influenced by both Davis and Doggett, Jackie Davis’s solo career began in 1951 where he was playing the clubs around Philadelphia. Regular touring around the U.S. led to the Hammond organ fast becoming his trademark instrument. Signed at first to Capitol records where he made many fine albums, he was later to sign to Warner Bros. His increasingly wild albums covered many musical areas but were always rooted in the jazz tradition. Jackie Davis was a very influential ambassador of the Hammond organ who can certainly be named as one of the real innovators on the instrument. His quoted disciples include both Shirley Scott and the great Jimmy Smith.
