(Eddie Harris – Listen Here)
finishing up the ‘players’ with this masterpiece from Eddie Harris who, in his own words, defines it as
“A Latin jazz tune for dancing”
taken from his final recording session for Atlantic in April 1967.. reduced from 30 minutes to just over 7, (a mistake in my humble opinion), featuring the combined skills of percussionist’s Ray Barretto & Joe Wohletz, Richard Smith on drums, Melvin Jackson on bass duties, Jodie Christian on Piano and the man himself blowing up a storm on Tenor Sax.
another BIG tune on London’s Rare Groove dancefloors back in 86/7, (as well as being a million seller on initial release)
by the way, tomorrow is the start of a new theme goodbad&ugly, an alternative soundtrack/tribute to one of themusicologists most loved films.
