Philip Morris All-Stars Live

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
Philip Morris All-Stars Live is a fun release that is both accessible and reasonably creative within the swing/bop idiom. Pianist Gene Harris heads an all-star band of veterans which also includes trumpeter Harry "Sweets" Edison, tenor saxophonist Stanley Turrentine, guitarist Kenny Burrell, bassist George Mraz and drummer Lewis Nash.

"I Wish I Knew" has long been Edison's feature. 79 at the time of this 1995 concert, the trumpeter is heard in better than usual form for this late period.
