Goin' to the Meeting is an album by saxophonist Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis recorded in 1962 for the Prestige label.
It was released as Eddie Lockjaw Davis Meets Shirley Horn as Moodsville 30 in 1960. With the exception of a quartet recording released on Stompin' (Prestige 7456), the rest was another quintet with pianist Horace Parlan, drummer Art Taylor, Buddy Catlett on bass, and Willie Bobo on conga, issued as Goin' to the Meetin' in 1962 as Prestige 7242. As one would expect from Davis, these tunes, all 15 of them, are deeply rooted in the R&B tradition and swing like mad. Apologies are made, seemingly, on the jacket and in the booklet for Davis' willingness to keep it simple and.

While Davis appears to be the leader because of his beat generation bluesed-out swing in the solos and brief melodic statements, it's Parlan, on the title track, "Pass the Hat," and "Night and Day," who carries the tunes and turns them into a very sophisticated and subtle kind of jazz that allows for both the simplicity of a raw-toned

Edward F. Davis (March 2, 1922 – November 3, 1986), known professionally as Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis, was an American jazz tenor saxophonist. Davis played with Cootie Williams, Lucky Millinder, Andy Kirk, Eddie Bonnemere, Louis Armstrong, and Count Basie, as well as leading his own bands and making many recordings as a leader. He played in the swing, bop, hard bop, Latin jazz, and soul jazz genres. Some of his recordings from the 1940s also could be classified as rhythm and blues.
Fans of tenor saxophonist Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis will completely understand what I’m about to say: There are great Lockjaw Davis albums. And then there are really great Lockjaw Davis albums. What constitutes a really superb Davis recording? Davis has to be a bit on edge and faced with formidable, assertive competition behind him. On such albums, he doesn’t just plunge in with a biting reed attack. He also gives it a big 360-degree twist. Goin’ to the Meeting, a Prestige date from May 1962, was one of those all-in outings. Davis’ own Goin’ to the Meeting is a medium-tempo blues that provides some of his finest playing on the album along with a positively beautiful solo by Parlan. Oh, Babee is a walking blues by Davis, with the saxophonist sailing through, exchanging call and response lines with Taylor’s drum figures. Pass the Hat, an uptempo Davis original with a lyrical melody, lets him rip on the changes.
