Eddie Harris (b. Chicago, October 20 1936; d. November 5, 1996) was best known for playing tenor saxophone, though he was also fluent on the electric piano and organ. Harris also came up with the idea of the reed trumpet, playing one for the first time at The Newport Jazz Festival of 1970 to mostly negative critical feedback. His most well-known composition was “Freedom Jazz Dance”, recorded and popularized by Miles Davis in the 1960s.
