One of the very early records in the MPS catalogue and long collector’s item. Recorded in 1965, a time when the Afro-American Davis lived in Europe, working with such legends as Kenny Clarke, Eric Dolphy Elvin Jones and Art Blakey.
“The Flute in the Blues” composed by Davis himself showcases his light-hearted flute playing is a must hear. On Happy Girl he is accompanied by Woody Shaw on the trumpet, Larry Young on piano, bassist Jimmy Woode and drummer Billy Brooks. Probably the MPS album with the cutest cover.
