Harry “Sweets” Edison – Just Friends

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


“Trumpeter Harry “Sweets” Edison’s first recording as a leader in a decade was this obscure LP from the French Black and Blue label, preceding his first Pablo album by a year. Teamed up with tenor saxophonist Eddie “Lockjaw” Davis (all of their joint recordings are easily recommended), pianist Gerry Wiggins, bassist Major Holley and drummer Oliver Jackson, Sweets performs five veteran standards (including “Sunday” and “There Is No Greater Love”) and a couple of basic originals based on other tunes.” – Scott Yanow/AllMusic.
