The Electrifying Eddie Harris

The Tender Storm is an album by American jazz saxophonist Eddie Harris recorded in 1966 and released on the Atlantic label.[1][2]


The Allmusic review states "In a sense, this LP was really the calm before the storm, the album where Eddie Harris unveiled some new wrinkles in his act that would explode on the very next album Electrifying, while hewing tightly to a standard acoustic quartet format. Here he starts to use the Varitone amplified saxophone, albeit very discreetly, as he sticks mostly to the doubled octave effects for a suave tone that allows for some slippery swinging".[3]
