In these recordings made in the superb Nice Jazz festival in 1978, in which he is backed by the vast array of cats appearing also at the Festival, Harry Edison comes to his own style – a style forged on the Count Basie orchestra and so much loved by Frank Sinatra – and set the house on fire with his sidekick Eddie Davis. The tracks Avalon or Bye Bye Blackbird give ample proof of that in which Vic Dickenson’s trombone solo also stands out. Emotion and sentiment are never far and beautiful tone and bright sound often converge. A completely enjoyable album from beginning to end!
