“Jaws in Orbit” is an album by saxophonist Eddie “Lockjaw” Davis with organist Shirley Scott recorded in 1959 for the Prestige label.
The group that Eddie “Lockjaw” Davis led with organist Shirley Scott during the latter half of the 1950s was quite accessible and did a great deal to popularize the organ band in jazz. This reissue features the duo joined by bassist George Duvivier, drummer Arthur Edgehill and the obscure trombonist Steve Pulliam for a typically swinging set of basic originals and standards. Highlights include a hard-swinging “Intermission Riff” and “Our Delight.”
