Album Notes
"Every once in a while in a long recording career, you run into an artist who is more than a client. Charles Davis is a great guitarist and that goes without saying. What is more important is that he is a great songwriter, spirit, and friend. I met him through my mentor and close friend, Calvin Owens. This first album of Charles' music is continuing the tradition that Calvin brought to the music of Houston, Texas. Big band blues with fiery guitar, sax solos, horn sections and a quartet of great singers make this album a must for any blues fan. You will enjoy the phenomenal vocal talents of Roberta Donnay, Trudy Lynn, Rue Davis, and Jabo - Texas Prince of Zydeco. This is only the beginning of a lot of great music you will hear from Charles Davis. Stay tuned for more to come; meanwhile, enjoy this album. It is great living room listening music and even better driving music. 'Keep big band blues alive.'" -- Andy Bradley, Chief Engineer, Sugarhill Recording Studios, Houston, Texas

From Jim Beal of San Antonio Express-News: "Davis and the crew hit the big-blues-band mark with originals and a couple of classics. . . . it's full-on, soulfully arranged brass and guitar-driven songs such as 'That's How I Learned to Sing the Blues' and 'A Minor Thing,' sung by Donnay; 'Old-Fashioned Woman' with Jabo and Davis trading verses; and 'Still Got the Blues' and 'It's Tight Like That,' led by Lynn, that show the essence, the power and the pull of big-band blues. Here's to several more hours of Davis' blues."

As the guitarist for the legendary Calvin Owens Blues Orchestra, Charles “CD” Davis spent almost a decade performing and touring with the band, as well as appearing on several of Owens’ albums including The House is Burnin’, I Ain’t Gonna Be Yo’ Dog No Mo’, Houston is the Place to Be, The Calvin Owens Show, and others. He also appeared on the Johnny Bush/Willie Nelson albums that featured the Calvin Owens Blues Orchestra.

After Calvin’s death in February 2008, Charles began producing and recording his own projects. 24 Hour Blues features the guitarist along with vocalists Jabo – Texas Prince of Zydeco, Roberta Donnay, Rue Davis, and Trudy Lynn. Recorded at Sugarhill Recording Studios in Houston and produced by Charles, the album features CD’s original tunes and his new arrangements of a few blues standards.
