Reason Why I'm Talkin S**t

LP (Item 59814) Atlantic, 1976 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.50 5

A very interesting album from Eddie Harris – one that's more of a comedy album than a jazz record – honest! Most of the record features Eddie performing his own comedy material – pretty blue stuff with lots of bad-rapping and profanity – possibly trying to cash in on the Rudy Ray Moore tip. A few cuts feature some backing by a combo that includes Paul Humphrey on drums and Odell Brown on organ – helping Eddie to set the scene and change the mood. Titles include "People Getting Ready To Go See Eddie Harris", "Are There Any Questions", "The Next Band", "Brother Soul", "Eddie Atlantic", and "Singing & Straining". (Cover has a cutout notch.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Genius Of Eddie Harris
Tradition/Everest, Early 60s/Late 60s. Very Good-
Genius is right! This nice set of recordings from Eddie's Vee Jay years shows the soul jazz tenorist playing some of his more far-reaching work – like the incredible "Olifant Gesang", an 8 minute free form track that sounds more like Sun Ra-tinged exoticism than it does the kind of ...

Mean Greens
Atlantic, 1966. Very Good-
A 60s classic from the great Eddie Harris – and proof that his move to Atlantic Records was a very good thing! There's a punch here that Harris didn't have in his earlier sides for Vee Jay – a bite that shows an even stronger focus than before – a willingness to mix soulful ... LP, Vinyl record album

Plug Me In
Atlantic, 1968. Very Good+
Killer stuff – and an amazing album that not only showcases the varitone sax talents of Eddie Harris, but also features some fantastic arrangements by Chicago soul genius Charles Stepney! Harris plugs in right from the start – blowing an electric sax that comes up with some groovy ... LP, Vinyl record album

I Need Some Money
Atlantic, 1975. Very Good+
A nice little funk album from Eddie – one that shouldn't work, but does nicely, thanks to a unique approach to the groove! Eddie's still playing plenty of electric sax on the set – and is going for a sound here that's equal parts soul jazz, modal groove, and down and dirty funk! The ... LP, Vinyl record album

Four Brothers Sound
Atlantic, Late 50s. Very Good
An amazing record by Jimmy Giuffre – one that he uses to replicate the "4 Brothers Sound" of the years when he played with Woody Herman as one of a group of four saxophonists blowing together – but done here by Jimmy himself on all 4 horns, using early overdubbing techniques ...

Soul Of The Ballad
Atlantic, 1963. Very Good
Hank Crawford takes a decidedly mellower approach on this set – working with warm and wonderful arrangements by Marty Paich, in a series of soulful readings of familiar ballads and love songs – all of which come out in a dreamy late night mode! There's still a fair bit of Ray Charles ... LP, Vinyl record album

Paris Encounter
Atlantic, 1969. Very Good
Quite a surprising pairing of talents – and a set that shows that at in the right settings, Stephane Grappelli's still got plenty of modern moments! The core group is really that of vibist Gary Burton – with Steve Swallow on electric bass and Bill Goodwin on drums – both players ... LP, Vinyl record album
