While Harry Edison was in France to perform at the Nice Jazz Festival in 1978, he was invited  to a recording sesión in Brignoles on the 18th of July. The Session was organized by Black & Blue in the wake of the success of the Midnight Slows Series. Recorded at the Miraval Studio, which was owned at the time by Jacques Loussier it was never released until now. We could easily say that these might be one of Edison’s finest recordings thanks to his masterful discourse and simple phrasing. Bill Doggett’s laid-back accompaniment gives ample proof of his fine knowledge of the standards.

They made only one take for each title with the exception of Polka Dots And Moonbeams for which the first take turned out to be the best. A session recorded in under three hours on two tracks for the ten, primary ballads, titles on the album. Highly Recommended!
