Steve Davis (1929-1987) (also known by his Muslim name Luquman Abdul Syeed) was a jazz bassist, very active in the sixties.
In 1960, he was briefly part of the renowned John Coltrane quartet, before being replaced by Reggie Workman. Davis recorded My Favorite Things (album) with the quartet. He also recorded as a sideperson with Chuck & Gap Mangione in Hey Baby!, and with quartet fellow (and brother in law) McCoy Tyner in the album Nights of Ballads & Blues.
