About Harry "Sweets" Edison

Trumpeter Harry "Sweets" Edison is a master of understatement, an inimitable improvisor who places notes with surgical precision. He has likewise achieved remarkable artistic longevity due his continual willingness and ability to develop. A member of Count Basie's classic band from 1938-1950, he also had a long association with Frank Sinatra live and on record, and his '70s recordings with soul compatriot Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis produced works of endless blues invention.
