Davis, born in Montgomery, Alabama, is best rememberd for his 1949 recording of the 1925 standard "Sweet Georgia Brown". It became internationally famous after being adopted as the theme song of the Harlem Globetrotters basketball team in 1952. Notably, the bass line for this track uses the Novachord, a very early electronic synthesizer more prominently featured on the B side of the record. Despite the success of this record, Brother Bones himself remained relatively unknown.
