Subject: I have found a CD that I think you would enjoy
Soul, funky, bluesy, jazz sax with pumping large band
(4 out of 5 stars)
"I really like Eddie Harris, particularly his use of what he calls vari-tone sax, which is sax with a harmonizer--he picks an interval, be it low octave,third or whatever, and adds a touch. It's wild. Some of his discs are a bit dated but the selection on this disc is funky and fine."
THIS IS A HAPPY CD
(5 out of 5 stars)
"I bless Eddie Harris, wherever he's playing now. This is one of my favorite CDs, not only because it was the last one he recorded, but because I love the arrangements of Freedom Jazz Dance and Sidewinder on here, and I love big bands. This CD will make you smile. NOTE to all school jazz band directors. Start your students early in playing jazz. Middle school is not too early. Don't wait until high school."
