Earl Hines – Harry ‘Sweets’ Edison – earl meets harry


These two giants of jazz had never had the chance to meet frequently and therefore hardly knew each other even though their musical ideas are practically identical.  Perhaps this sharpened their curiosity and incited them to do their best.

Everything seems to gel in the opening track, a strident take of “I Cover the Waterfront,” with plenty of trills by Hines in support of Edison’s brilliant open horn. Edison adds a mute for an exquisite, deliberate take of “Just Squeeze Me” and a sauntering “But Not for Me.” Hines’ dancing tenths come to the forefront in their romp through “Just You, Just Me”.
There is nothing like two veterans at the top of their game joining forces for a record date.
