Teddy Plays Eddie: The Music of Eddie Harris

Tedd Baker [saxophone]
Harry Appelman [piano & organ]
Hamilton Price [bass]
Quincy Phillips [drums]

The Tedd Baker Quartet celebrates the music of the great Eddie Harris! One of Baker’s many influences, Eddie’s sounds on the saxophone, his compositions, publications, and the stories surrounding him, are “near and dear… His music is as current now as when first released.” Eddie played the original Keystone Korner many times, and “All The Way Live” was recorded there with organ great Jimmy Smith. Baker has gotten to know the Harris family over the years and asked permission to present this program. Join the fun for an evening of exciting music with very special guests!

“Big muscular tone and perpetually moving lines produce hard-bop improvisations that grab the listener’s interest and generate intense emotion” – JazzTimes

Tedd Baker has worked with a wide variety of jazz greats and contemporary artists including Barry Harris, David Sanborn, Arturo Sandoval, Slide Hampton, Eddie Daniels, Victor Lewis, Jason Moran, Wycliffe Gordon, Fitz and The Tantrums, Sean Jones, Michael Mossman, Warren Wolf, The 8-Bit Big Band, Ryles Jazz Orchestra with Jon Faddis, Artie Shaw Orchestra, and Donny McCaslin among others.
