SCCD 31322 For You, For Me, For Evermore / Eddie Harris
As the composer of the famous “Freedom Jazz Dance” and with the million seller success of his recording of “Exodus” , Eddie Harris (b. Oct. 20, 1934 in Chicago) is probably the most prominent Chicago tenor.
This Copenhagen recording, however, will be the most significant accomplishment of Harris’ jazz career. The duet with himself project was a result of an accident (the piano player did not show up!). Resourceful, versatile and ever creative Eddie Harris took the two instruments in his hand and conjured up this astonishing one-man show.
