Known as one of Canada’s most fluent jazz pianist/composers, Ron Davis steps outside the box with this eclectic and very entertaining new album. He and his ace band of A-list locals put a refreshing spin on tunes from the diverse likes of Hendrix, Elvis, the Beatles and Sesame Street (“Mahna Mahna”). Yours truly especially loves the offbeat yet tuneful take on XTC classic “Making Plans For Nigel”, while the funky original “Pawpwalk” is another highlight.
