Eat Me Baby I'm a Jellybean

GAS GASCD016 (1999)

Brilliantly played quirky jazz standards. daevid returns to his roots with this fresh bebop album on which he sings some of his favourite classic jazz standards with a powerful, grooving, eloquent and emotional quartet of master jazz musicians including Gong's Didier Malherbe and master drummer N'dugu Chancler. The playing is of the very highest standard and daevid's new and re-written lyrics are pure alien. Just joyful throughout. daevid's booklet notes.
