    " ˜Wild Bill´s´ prime gifts to jazz will always be remembered by future generations of musicians influenced by his distinctive style. I am sure that his proudest endowment is his band´s continuing heartfelt affection and admiration. These are the men who worked with ˜Wild Bill.´ They traveled with him, learned from him, and were inspired by him; they benefited greatly from Bill´s encouragement and assistance. These are tunes they played with him in saloons, on concert stages, and at festivals in the U.S. and Europe. Many of these musicians are leaders in their own right. Yet, these artists of world class stature proudly unite to sustain their mentor´s image. In these capable hands, the ˜... fire will burn on and on!´ That is unquestionably ˜Wild Bill´ Davison´s greatest legacy! “ Floyd Levin, award-winning jazz writer for more than 40 years, jazz producer, lyricist and contributor of scores of oral history interviews to the Jazz Archive at Tulane University in New Orleans.

    Here is what the critics have to say:
