The amazing thing about Sweets [Edison] was that he exactly spoke the way that he played! He was really unique, the one and only. He was one of the greatest Blues players that I ever heard and played with. Nobody can play like Sweets man, nobody! Most of us, musicians, frequently quote Sweets’ phrases in our solos. Like Lester Young, Sweets had a big influence on us musicians, especially when we play some Blues.
