Album Review

A typically excellent set by the underrated tenor saxophonist Teddy Edwards (one of the top tenors to emerge during the mid-'40s), this quartet date with pianist Kenny Drew, bassist Jesper Lundgaard and drummer Billy Hart features the distinctive Edwards on two originals ("No Name No. 1" and "April Love") and four standards. The CD reissue adds a second version of "Summertime" to the original program. Teddy Edwards has yet to record an unworthy set and his swinging session (one of only two that he made as a leader during 1977-90) will be enjoyed by bop collectors.

Teddy Edwards was, with Dexter Gordon and Wardell Gray, the top young tenor of the late '40s. Unlike the other two, he chose to remain in Los Angeles and has been underrated through the years but remained in prime form well into his 70s. Early on, he toured with Ernie Fields' Orchestra, moving to L.A. in 1945 to work with Roy Milton as an altoist. Edwards switched to tenor when he joined Howard McGhee's band and was featured in many jam sessions during the era, recording "The Duel" with Dexter Gordon...
