Resultat d'imatges de charlie boogie woogie davis

Virtually nothing is known about vocalist/pianist Charlie “Boogie Woogie” Davis who cut two dozen sides in L.A. at three sessions in 1947. Davis is a fine big voiced singer who could pound the 88's and was blessed with a swinging combo featuring the outstanding trumpeter Jake Porter. Porter moved to L.A. in 1949 where he performed in the clubs with Lionel Hampton, Benny Goodman, Flether Henderson and others. He was an in-demand session artist working with Saunders King, Lloyd Glenn, Gene Phillips and others. He also cut a handful of sides under his own name in 1948 and 1949.

Returning to the "Jump n Jive (Rare West Coast -45-54) compilation here´s "San Quentin Bait" with Charles Boogie Woogie Davis & His Orchestra. Originally released on Imperial b/w "Rainin´ Blues" (1949). And no mr Boogie Woogie you can´t bring the girl with you to San Quentin...
