Lowell Davidson

Lowell Davidson was an experimental music pianist, composer, church organist at the Fire Baptized Holiness Church of God, aluminum contrabassist, and percussionist.

Graduated from Boston Latin School and in 1958 received a full scholarship to attend Harvard, intending to be a doctor of bio-chemistry. (This was the time of Timothy Leary and Richard Alpert experimentations with psychedelics.) In his seventh year as an undergraduate—he had been taking too much time from his studies to play in New York with Ornette Coleman, and other masters of avant-garde jazz—the scholarship was withdrawn. Without tuition money he was forced to leave Harvard. He began various Faustian experimentations with to gain paranormal abilities in both bio-chemical medical research and in music.
