2 LPs on one CD from Harry “Sweets” Edison – both quintet sessions for Roulette Records. After thirteen years with Count Basie, Edison became much a called upon sideman and his trumpet playing enhanced numerous studio recordings by major jazz names, while he also found time to make his own records as leader.

• Personnel: “Patented by Edison” – Harry Edison, trumpet; Jimmy Forrest, tenor sax; Tommy Flanagan, piano; Tommy Potter, bass and Elvin Jones, drums . “Sweetenings” – Harry Edison, trumpet; Jimmy Forrest, tenor sax; Jimmy Jones/Kenny Drew, piano; Joe Benjamin/John Simmons, bass and Charlie Persip, drums.

Harry 'Sweets' Edison: Edison's Lights (CD: Pablo- US Import)
Half the performances in this 1976 album reunited Harry Edison with Count Basie, the man he worked for from 1937 to 1950. Their compatibility and their joy at being together are apparent. Contrasting the spareness and economy of Edison and Basie is the tenor saxophone of Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis, another Basie confrère. Basie briefly reverts to his earliest type in the exhilarating stride passages of "Avalon." The pianist on the remaining tracks is the underrated modernist Dolo Coker. Throughout, in two of the trumpet giant's finest sessions, bass and drums are played by John Heard and Jimmie Smith. (Fantasy, Inc.)
