Over the past couple months I’ve been on a serious Eddie Harris kick. Lately good fortune has had me coming across some of his classic albums, from Plug Me In, and The Electrifying Eddie Harris, to Second Movement with Les McCann, who is featured in the video above on the keys. People talk about the saxophone being a conversationalist instrument, and with that said Eddie speaks in an intellectual dialect that I can comprehend. He doesn’t go over your head with abstractions, but his melodies ride with the fluency of a trigonometry equation.
As you might know Cold Duck is potent drink, and I can’t help but think it inspired this now infamous Jazz standard. To that I say cheers, we only have a few more days before Rocktober comes to an end and alcohol abuse becomes an issue again.
