    Rosetta – Benny Carter - Harry “Sweets” Edison 1983
    During the 1983 Bern Jazz Festival we see and hear two formidable jazz stars perform a tune remembering a compostion by pianist Earl “Fatha” Hines, who had just past on. Benny Carter on alto sax together with Harry “Sweets” Edison on trumpet do a fabulous version of this famous standard and are being backed up by Gerry Wiggins piano, Jimmy Wood bass, and Oliver Jackson drums. You don’t hear subtle jazz like this much anymore
