This is one of Eddie Harris‘ great records. The playing is inspired! What a band! Cedar Walton (piano) and Billy Higgins (drums), Lee Morgan’s favourite rhythm section. The underrated but popular tenor saxophonist introduces his „Freedom Jazz Dance“, which would become a jazz standard after featuring on Miles Davis‘ album „Miles Smiles“. Plays one of the earlier versions of „The Shadow Of Your Smile“, romps on „Love For Sale“ and „‚S Wonderful“, and also performs „Born To Be Blue“ and his own „Cryin‘ Blues“. Harris is heard in prime form in a quartet/quintet with pianist Cedar Walton, bassist Ron Carter, drummer Billy Higgins, and part-time trumpeter Ray Codrington. A gem.
