'Sweets' and 'Jaws' began as a casual pairing which developed into one of the
most well-established partnerships in jazz. Their first album together was
recorded in 1962, and by 1976, Harry 'Sweets' Edison and Eddie 'Lockjaw' Davis
were touring Europe. In Denmark they found John Darville and Kenny Drew; and
with producer Ole Matthiessen, ended up recording together in Copenhagen.
Storyville Records originally released this session as two separate Sweets and
Jaws LPs: Vol. 1, John Darville's Quartet With Kenny Drew, 1978, and Vol. 2,
Opus Funk, 1982. The 1997 Storyville aluminum CD version contains only eight of
the album's total of twelve songs.
Mobile Fidelity has taken the original master tape and transferred a total of
eleven songs for the ultimate and uninterrupted performance of these jazz
masters. Accompanying Sweets (trumpet) and Jaws (tenor saxophone) are Kenny Drew
(piano), Hugo Rasmussen (bass), Svend Erik Norregarrd (drums), and John Darville
