Tenor saxophonist Eddie Harris is best-known for his composition 'Freedom Jazz Dance,' which Miles Davis brought to prominence in 1966, and for being a pioneer of the electric saxophone, yet his career is long, distinguished and varied. His debut album 'Exodus Into Jazz,' was named for his jazz adaptation of the theme from the movie 'Exodus', a chart-topping smash hit which became the first jazz song to win a gold disc. There were further jazz/film soundtrack explorations for Vee Jay and some concept albums too, with 'Bossa Nova' being the most noteworthy of the bunch. The Brazilian form had been gaining favour in the US thanks to 'Girl From Ipanema,' yet Harris' LP was not a tokenistic stab at faddism; instead, Harris uses the form as a launchpad for his own sterling solos, heard most enticingly on 'Cev Y Mar' and on the dreamy opener 'Mima,' inspired by his young daughter, Lolita Marie. The stellar backing is part of the picture too, the hand-picked musicians led by esteemed pianist Lalo Schifrin (then still making a name for himself), with Coltrane/Monk bassist Art Davis, Dizzy Gillespie drummer Chuck Lampkin and veteran guitarist Jimmy Raney allowing Harris
all the space he needs, yet never playing mere filler behind him.
