In 1960, he was briefly part of the renowned John Coltrane quartet, before being replaced by Reggie Workman.[1][2] Davis recorded My Favorite Things (album) with the quartet. He also recorded as a sideperson with Chuck and Gap Mangione on Hey Baby!, and with quartet fellow (and brother in law) McCoy Tyner on the album Nights of Ballads & Blues.
