Trackin' is an album by saxophonist Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis recorded in 1962 for the Prestige label.[3]

Reception[edit]

Critic Don Nelsen wrote in his Down Beat review in the December 19, 1963 issue: "This is a blue-chip performance from Davis & Co. As usual the tenorist swings with big sound and unabashed attack, but rarely has he been so inventive with his horn as he is here."[1]

The Allmusic review states simply "A five piece with Don Patterson on the Hammond B-3 and Paul Weeden on guitar".[2]
