Although trumpeter Harry "Sweets" Edison and tenor saxophonist Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis recorded several albums together in the 1970s, this CD reissue was their only Pablo date as a team. Edison is the nominal leader and he contributed four of the eight selections (which alternate with four veteran standards), but the competitive Lockjaw gets in his fiery licks too. While bassist John Heard and drummer Jimmie Smith are part of the quintet and pianist Dolo Coker is on half of the program, Count Basie himself drops by for four songs to cheer on his former sidemen.

Edison's Lights Album.

Sweets” Edison earned his moniker from Lester Young when they played together in Count Basie's band. A mainstay of the Swing generation, Edison's economical, perfectly phrased trumpet sound fit in with Bop and West Coast Cool (where Edison became a studio powerhouse after being handpicked by Frank Sinatra as his main soloist in the early ‘50s). Sweets” recorded a sterling set of albums on his own, but is best known for his work with Sinatra, Charlie Parker, Nat Cole, Ben Webster, Quincy Jones, Ella Fitzgerald and just about every other big name in mainstream jazz.
