    This is part of the Blue Note Limited Edition Connoisseur series.
    Jazz pianist Walter Davis Jr. is one of those solid, dependable accompanists--for Art Blakey, Jackie McLean, Max Roach, and others--whose worth sometimes gets taken for granted. DAVIS CUP, Davis's debut as a leader, was originally released in 1959 and remains a hard-bop fan's delight. Davis's style is a nigh on perfect synthesis of the mercurial bebop of Bud Powell and the thoughtful cool of Thelonious Monk. With a group that's quintessentially Blue Note (Jackie McLean, pre-funk Donald Byrd, Art Taylor, and Sam Jones) and a program of earnestly swinging originals, Davis's CUP surely runneth over in the best possible way.
