Album Notes

Following the hip strategy of the time, Eddie Harris flew to London to mix it up with some of Britain's most in-demand rockers -- including guitarists Jeff Beck and Albert Lee, pianist Stevie Winwood and drummer Alan White -- on this LP. Truthfully, though, most of the results aren't too different from what Harris had been recording at home at the time, with only a hint of a rock edge. If anything, the workmanlike Brits are too much on their best behavior -- Beck plays with restraint and taste while Lee is jazzier and a bit flashier -- making Harris seem like a wild man by comparison. The most entertaining tune is an EH-patented funkster "Wait a Little Longer," which develops a head of steam and escalates into a freeform brawl, but the designated free workout "Conversations of Everything and Nothing," give or take a few stimulating passages, wanders uncontrollably. ~ Richard S. Ginell
