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
Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
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.
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.
