Nasty - Harry Edison - The Swinger and Mr. Swing (CD)

This double CD is one of my top five favorites. As the album titles suggest, this is pure swing jazz at its best. Harry Edison is at his best, as are tenor sax man Jimmy Forest and pianist Jimmy Jones. Don't let the sticker price for this collection scare you - this is 5 star music.5/5(5).

"The late Harry "Sweets" Edison was one of the acknowledged masters of swing trumpet; this reissue combines the original LPs The Swinger and Mr. Swing into a two-CD set with the addition of the previously unreleased "How Am I to Know?" and an Edison original, "Blues in the Closet" (no relation to the Oscar Pettiford piece with the same name). Harry Edison "the swinger," playing standards or originals or just the blues, glows in these warm sessions with incandescence. He neatly swings through standards and a few of his own tunes. On the last three tracks of CD-2, coming from a Roulette session, the contribution of the sidemen can easily be overlooked, for it is the Edison personality, open or muted, that lends the tunes its character.

    Tight session of hard post-swing jazz, but still very straight ahead. With Jimmy Forrest on tenor adding a nice hard edge to Harry Edison's trumpet sound, and a large rhythm section featuring Jimmy Jones, Freddie Greene, Joe Benjamin and Charlie Persip. 6 in all: "Nasty", "Pussy LP, Vinyl record album.

    The time is tight on each track, with the clop of swing's tempos the prime modus operandi of Edison's bands. With tenor saxophonist Jimmy Forrest in the slender quintet's frontline for both these sessions, The Swinger and Mr. Swing share what you might consider some creative tension between brawn and relaxation. The laconic tunes are each imbued with lots of relaxed blowing, but Forrest in 5/5(5).
