Gene Harris – Tone Tantrum

null

Sweet sweet keyboards from the amazing Gene Harris – one of his seminal electric sides for Blue Note in the 70s – recorded between his earliest fame in the Three Sounds, and his later return to acoustic styles in the 80s! The sound here is equal parts jazz and soul – as Gene’s working with vocalist/arranger Jerry Peters, who brings in a good deal of his own groove to the tracks – giving them a strong focus that’s sometimes missing from other solo Harris sets. Both Peters and Harris play Fender Rhodes and other keyboards on the album – alongside a variety of players that include Donald Byrd on trumpet, Harvey Mason on drums, and Chuck Rainey on bass. Tracks include the Peters tunes “If You Can’t Find Love” and “A Minor”, a two-part remake of Duke Pearson’s “Christo Redentor”, the sweet stepper “Peace Of Mind”, and a strong vocal take on Stevie Wonder’s “As”.
