Live at the Bird's Eye features pianist Jon Davis and his trio performing at the Bird's Eye jazz club in Basel, Switzerland in December of 2013. Backing Davis are bassist Isla Eckinger and drummer Peter Schmidlin. Together, Davis and his group delve into a selection of mostly covers, including Herbie Hancock's "Driftin'," Antonio Carlos Jobim's "Zingara," the classic Great American Songbook standard "My Ideal," and others. This is engaging, urbane, straight-ahead acoustic jazz.
