This release contains the complete Harry “Sweets” Edison quartet LP The Inventive Mr. Edison (Pacific Jazz PJ-11), appearing here for the first time ever on CD. It was recorded under studio conditions live at The Haig, in Los Angeles, and showcases the trumpeter swinging well known standards backed by Arnold Ross, Joe Comfort and Alvin Stoller. According to discographies, this album is unique for being the first of Edison’s very few quartet dates. Our companion LP, Jawbreakers (Riverside Records RLP-S430), also included here in its entirety, was taped in a quintet format nearly a decade after our first album, and features Sweets sharing the frontline with tenor saxophonist Eddie “Lockjaw” Davis.
