5.0 out of 5 stars Prime-era Eddie Harris 17 Sep 2000
By Melissa - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This CD combines two very fine Eddie Harris lp's, The In Sound (1965) and Mean Greens (1966) from his most prolific and satisfying period at Atlantic Records. The In Sound is a straight-ahead jazz recording, done Eddie Harris-style. In other words, it has elements of blues, swing and fusion. "Born to Be Blue", though often covered, gets a fresh treatment. "Love for Sale" is done uptempo. The playing is inspired! What a band! Cedar Walton (piano) and Billy Higgins (drums), Lee Morgan's favorite rhythm section, play on the first 10 tracks. Although The In Sound is mostly jazz standards, it marks the first appearance of "Freedom Jazz Dance", a precursor to 70's fusion, and destined to become a standard in its own right. "Cryin' Blues" and "Mean Greens", from the second lp is this collection, have the same sort of off-centered groove and Miles Davis-inspired modal sound as "Freedom Jazz Dance". When Eddie Harris found a sound that worked, he had no shame in repeating it. While the first four tracks on Mean Greens continue in the same vein as the tracks on The In Sound, the 4 tunes that close out the recording suggest the path that he would follow later, electronic and funky. There is a prototype "Listen Here", with Eddie Harris playing electric piano (and Ray Barretto on congas!). The final tunes, "Blues in the Basement" and "Goin' Home" are, funky, swinging, organ-combo blues comps. Eddie had formidable chops and technique, something that is often forgotten because of his later commercial success. Soon after these two albums, Eddie Harris released the phenomenally successful The Electrifying Eddie Harris and Swiss Movement. His varitone (electronic) sax would, thereafter, get all the attention and his jazz credentials would be dismissed by some; however, these two albums show the many sides of Eddie Harris. He was a multidimensional player, innovative and a technical master. This is a brilliant re-packaging by Rhino records. These two lp's really do belong together. They show an Eddie Harris in transition, on the edge of evolving into a jazz superstar.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the top ten 24 Dec 2007

If I was allowed to have only 10 jazz CD's this would be one. I'm not a jazz expert or a musician. But I have listened to this CD at least 50 times and I haven't gotten sick of it yet. Eddie Harris was one of the best.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sax for the new 23 Sep 2012
By David G McCain - Published on Amazon.com

I first heard about Eddie Harris from Joe Satriani ( Joe's last album " Black Swans. . . " features a Eddie Harris like tribute tune ). I didn't know anything about Eddie. But I picked this up on a whim and fell in love with it. From " Born To Be Blue, " you get a slow blues with a touch of jazz funk. The tune takes you not to a sad pace but one of reflection. " Freedom Jazz Dance " is unique for it's groove and displacement of the bass riff. But it's danceable and funky at the same time. Eddie's tone is warm and not the kind of " shrill " sound you would get from some saxophonists, past their be-bop prime. Eddie is no Coltrane. But Harris knows how to groove. Think of this disc as " Kind Of Blue " with more soul and funk and you get Eddie Harris' " The In Sound. "
