Tale of Two Cities

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Roberta Penn
On A Tale of Two Cities, tenor saxman Eddie Harris is showcased in his Chicago hometown on Mother’s Day 1983 at Joe Segal’s Jazz Showcase and in 1978 at the Keystone Korner in San Francisco. The live sets showcases Harris’s mellow side on “Chicago Serenade,” his affinity for Gene Ammons’s style on “Lover Man,” and his scat chops on “Sonnymoon for Two,” on which he also plays piano and a trumpet with a saxophone mouthpiece. On several of the cuts he performs with a pre-recorded rhythm section.

This CD from the short-lived Night label features the talented tenor Eddie Harris on two different occasions. From 1978 Harris is caught live at Keystone Korner in San Francisco, playing four superior standards plus his famous hit "Listen Here" while joined by pianist Jack Wilson, bassist Herbie Lewis and drummer Eddie Marshall. The three Chicago cuts from 1983 "Chicago Serenade," "Sonnymoon for Two" and "Illusionary Dreams" not only showcase him on tenor but electric sax, some reed trumpet, piano and vocals along with pianist Rob Schneiderman, bassist Louis Spears and drummer Albert "Tootle" Heath. The recording quality is good and Harris sounds somewhat inspired on both occasions, emphasizing his roots in bebop while still sounding contemporary and original.
