iTunes Review

The title refers to Eddie Harris’ relocation in 1970 to Atlantic’s Criteria Studio in Miami, Florida — a change in locale plainly represented by the white sand beach and outsized orange that obscures Harris’ picture in the front cover image. The idea was to pair Harris with some of the studio’s top session players, many of whom had contributed key parts to classic records by Aretha Franklin and Wilson Pickett. Bassist Duck Dunn and drummer Tubby Ziegler provide a rock solid foundation, while dueling accompaniment is generated by the pairings of keyboardists Billy Carter and Dave Crawford, and guitarists Jim O’Rourke and Cornell Dupree. “Don’t You Know the Future’s In Space” is a gritty floating R&B riff over which Harris squalls. Though it is the least flashy, “Really?” is the album’s best song. Its mournful existential blues shows that Harris is one of the few saxophonists who is able to simply “be,” without committing to an overpowering movement towards a single direction.

Great!

Thank you itunes. I searched many an album bin for this album. This was my first Eddie Harris album. I'm on cloud nine now. Really? and Fooltish brought me back to my college days on campus at UW when I really got into Eddie Harris.

The Great Eddie HARRIS fonks it w/CORNELL DUPREE Guitar.

I was a soul and jazz and funk music lover growing . In certain albums the genres meshed perfectly because the mix of players had those chops and the time was right. This record from 1970 was one of those perfect grooves and remains so today... Also, hard to believe but EDDIE HARRIS WAS POPULAR ! Perhaps because you can DANCE to his music , and ya should!!! Also check out "is it in" . Cornell DUPREE is tha man on funksoul guitar.

Hot Biscuits!

Man, this is got some great hooks. I bought this on a whim, just by 30 sec sampling clips and a bit of research about Eddie. Great rhythm section!
And Kevin55 is right! "Fooltish" has to be one of the first songs in my life where I got stuffed so far in a pocket of groove that I could not get out of it...splendid track. Worth the buy and great price

Long underrated in the pantheon of jazz greats, Eddie Harris was an eclectic and imaginative saxophonist whose career was marked by a hearty appetite for experimentation. For quite some time, he was far more popular with audiences than with critics, many of whom denigrated him for his more commercially successful ventures. Harris' tastes ranged across the spectrum of black music, not all of which was deemed acceptable by jazz purists. He had the chops to handle technically demanding bop, and the...
