Eddie Harris in Lugano, Switzerland, 1989
The legendary tenor saxophonist, trumpeter, pianist, singer and pioneer-for-a-lot-of-things Eddie Harris is one musician I never saw live, although he sometimes appeared in places not really to far from me. But I was a free jazz only guy at that time and arrogant at that.
Happily in my late friend Otto Flückiger’s collection I found TV footage from Harris’ appearance at the Estival Jazz Lugano in 1989, where he was accompagnied by Ronald Muldrow on guitar, bassist Ray Peterson and drummer Norman Fearrington.
So as my present for the end of the year to you all here is the Eddie Harris quartet in Lugano 1989 in two parts.
