Format: Audio CD
This is 'quite' a jazzy album for Eddie Harris (he tends to produce funky Donald Bird type ones, or jazzy ones) but there's one track, 'Illusionary Dreams' that really captures why I used to go and see Eddie as often as I could when he played over here, and that is his relaxed humour and his skill. He describes the track as one that will be on his next album, and then tries to demonstrate how all the different parts in the song will go. It's not funny when I tell it though :/
The audience in this album are joining in, cheering him on and generally having a good time, which adds to the atmosphere (they add a vibe similar to the crowd in the background of 'Wade in the Water', by - oh blimey, what's his name? - that guy that had a big hit with it in the late 60's... sorry, can't remember his name, but it'll no doubt come back to me as soon as I've finished this :)
Ramsey Lewis! just in time...
Finally, a short bit of info to end this ramble - Eddie Harris studied electronics in the Air Force, and used his new-found knowhow to build his own distortion amplifiers - feeding the sound of his saxophone through them and making sounds similar to some wah wah pedals nowadays - a lot of electric guitarists find his sound quite intriguing

3.0 out of 5 stars Gimmicks and sidetracks sometimes overwhelm the songs 4 Aug. 2006
By loce_the_wizard - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This CD is assembled from live two sessions: three tracks from a Chicago gig in 1983, Chicago Serenade, Sonnymoon for Two, and Illusionary Dreams and the rest from a San Francisco gig from 1978. Oddly, the tracks from the different sessions are not grouped together, which makes an already disjointed album sound even less cohesive.

Eddie Harris was a talented, freewheeling jazzman who dabbled into all mode and manner of music. These live sessions show that he is not above poking fun at himself or even his audience, though not in a mean-spirited fashion.

Sometimes the gimmicks and sidetracks overwhelm the songs, and his scat vocals prove not to be his strong suite. When Mr. Harris gets down to business, as he does on the wonderful Chicago Serenade--the best track here, there is magic in the air. But too often, the songs here represent either a bit too much experimentation or a bit too much doodling.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Entertainer/Musician 28 Aug. 2010
By Thom Redford - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
If you're looking for a serious music CD,this is not for you. While the music is outstanding, the focus here is on Eddie Harris the entertainer. Taken from amateur recordings of two live dates in Chicago and San Francisco, this CD pays homage to a man, who like Louis Armstrong, was not just a great musician/song-writer, but a gentleman and diverse entertainer.
This CD depicts Eddie Harris the man, who uses humor verbally and musically to keep this audiences involved in the show. The best example is my favorite cut,"Illusionary Dreams"- it starts soft and slow, builds to a crescendo, pauses to play with the audience musically and finally ends in a humorous explanation of the process used in the upcoming recording of this song-which sadly never came to fruition.
It is a rare occation when one can experience both the man and his music simultaneously-this is one such occation. It's my favorite Eddie Harris recording-it brings back the jazz giant that I knew and loved. Claim your piece of jazz history and beg, borrow or steal to get this CD.

4.0 out of 5 stars This album features pianist JACK WILSON... 8 April 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
...who is one of the greatest, albeit not-that-well-known pianists in jazz history. His spectacular, unaccompanied solo on Cherokee alone, makes this album worthwhile. Look out for more albums with Mr Wilson on them!

4.0 out of 5 stars One outstanding tune is worth the price of the CD 12 Jan. 2003
By G. Kukis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
"Illusionary Dreams" is a masterpiece and worth the price of the CD. It is unfortunate that this was never developed in the studio.
