"Quite excellent... too good to miss." -Jazz Journal
Best known for working with Charlie Parker, Benny Goodman, Dexter Gordon, Clifford Brown and Tom Waits, this pioneering tenor saxophonist is also a master balladeer, superb improviser and accomplished composer/ arranger. Edwards plays a lot of impassioned music here and also recalls his wildly emotional six-decades-plus career, full of innovative discoveries, high times and devastating setbacks. At the lively world premiere screening at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Edwards received a thunderous standing ovation. Variety compared it favorably to Ken Burns' "Jazz," calling it "a loving and shrewd evergreen" while the Minneapolis Star Tribune rated it 3.5 stars out of four.
