The Davis group, featuring fellow Minneapolis jazzman William Blakkestad on drums, gigged frequently around the midwest including Chicago. With his drummer inclined to steal attention with solos in the style of Buddy Rich, the pianist also became known for technical mastery. It makes sense that two of the pianists that Davis picked out as influences over the years, Oscar Peterson and Bud Powell, are both known for technical virtuosity.
