Harry Edison’s complete album Sweets, featuring an all-star sextet with Ben Webster on tenor sax and Jimmy Rowles on piano. As a bonus, a rare session by a Red Norvo sextet that included Edison, Webster and Rowles, which was originally issued on the obscure LP Some of My Favorites.
*****DOWN BEAT original review: SWEETS “Here is the essence of the muscular relaxation, the flowing swing, and the natural spontaneous expression of emotion that is the mainstream of jazz. Ben plays some of his most moving horn on recent records here. Sweets is superb. An essential LP. (Nat Hentoff)
