Thanks! Share it with your friends!


Bacalao is an album by American saxophonist Eddie “Lockjaw” Davis and organist Shirley Scott recorded in 1959 for the Prestige label.

The Allmusic site awarded the album 4 stars, stating: “Organ combo soul-jazz was still new and fresh in 1959, and Scott was helping Davis find new ways to interpret very familiar melodies. Although not quite essential, Bacalao is a rewarding example of Davis’ ability to thrive in an organ/tenor setting.”
