Cool Sax From Hollywood To Broadway

LP (Item 65757) Columbia, Mid 60s — Condition: Very Good+

Ok, so this isn't funky Eddie Harris – but this is one of Eddie Harris' more unique albums from the 60s! The record features Eddie blowing in that lean and soulful mode that he used on his best Vee Jay albums – a bit exotic, but never meandering, with impeccable placement in all his solos, and a tone that's probably one of the most revolutionary he ever used. Features "Little Lo Lo", "Groovy Moovies", "Sarah's Theme", and "Brother Ed" – and some familiar tunes like "Topkapi", "Days Of Wine & Roses", "Malamondo", and "From Russia With Love".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Mono 2 eye pressing. Cover has light wear.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight surface noise when played.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Genius Of Eddie Harris
Tradition/Everest, Early 60s/Late 60s. Sealed
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 ...

Mighty Like A Rose
Vee Jay, 1961. Very Good-
Although Exodus to Jazz was probably the biggest album of Eddie's career, we've always been a bit more partial to this excellent LP, a terrific document of Eddie's work from his early days on the Chicago jazz scene. Featuring Eddie's good early group with Willie Pickens on piano, Jo Dorio on ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atlantic, 1976. Near Mint-
Eddie continues the funky groove begun on Instant Funk, and smoothed out over albums like I Need Some Money – and although jazz fans probably gave him hell for going this way, we think this is actually a pretty darn great album!

Soul Of Eddie Harris
Up Front, Early 60s/Late 60s. Very Good
No real dates or notes on the cover, but the album appears to include some of Eddie's excellent early work for the Vee Jay label – a wonderful blend of soul jazz and slightly experimental phrasing, and the kind of groundbreaking material that got Eddie noticed very early on in his career. ...

Instant Death
Atlantic, 1972. Very Good+
Damn great work from the amazing Eddie Harris – a record that's got a perfect blend of jazz and funk, but still holds onto more righteous elements too! Eddie's using his electric sax in a really great way – not as a gimmick at all, but as a way of linking both the soulful and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Excursions
Atlantic, 1973. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
A super-long batch of messed-up funky jazz from Eddie Harris! The record's got Eddie working all aspects of the electric sax – in a similar style to some of his other work on the best Atlantic albums of the 70s (like Instant Death of Plug It In) – and the group features a shifting cast ...

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

Is It In
Atlantic, 1974. Very Good
One of Eddie's groovier Varitone albums, and a record that has a very electric sound to it! At times, Eddie's electric sax is so off-beat that you'd think he was playing a synthesizer instead of a sax, but in true Harris form, he always keeps it funky, and even the weird sounds have a great groove ...

Columbia (Netherlands), Early 50s. Very Good+
One of our favorite Duke Ellington albums, and a sometimes-overlooked work that stands as one of his best compositions from the time.

Heath Brothers

Passing Thru
Columbia, 1978. Near Mint-
Quite possibly the best of the Heath Brothers' post-Strata East albums – and one of the few to capture the spacious sound and hipper undertones that made their first record so great!

Weather Report

Sweetnighter
Columbia, 1973. Near Mint-
One of our favorite albums ever from Weather Report – an album that has them picking up a bit more soul than before, and shaking off some of the experimental sounds of their roots – yet all in a way that still makes them one of the most revolutionary fusion combos of the time! There's ... LP, Vinyl record album
