Harry "Sweets" Edison performs "Willow Weep for Me" at a 1964 performance at Wembley Hall in London.

Personnel:

Harry "Sweets" Edison - trumpet
Sir Charles Thompson - piano
Jimmy Woode - bass
Jo Jones - drums


Born in Columbus, Edison was already playing trumpet with local bands by the age of 12.

That's not a misprint. Professional gigs at 12.

At 22, he moved to the Big Apple and joined the Count Basie Orchestra.

His colleagues included Buck Clayton, Lester Young, Buddy Tate, Freddie Green, and Jo Jones.

He got the nickname "Sweets" from Pres (AKA Lester Young).
