Eddie Harris (October 20, 1934 – November 5, 1996) was an American jazz musician, best known for playing tenor saxophone and for introducing the electrically amplified saxophone. He was also fluent on the electric piano and organ. His best-known compositions are "Freedom Jazz Dance", recorded and popularized by Miles Davis in 1966, and "Listen Here. Harris was born and grew up in Chicago. His father was originally from Cuba, and his mother from New Orleans.

1971’s Instant Death features a squad of top players from Harris’ native Chicago, including guitarist Ronald Muldrow, bassist Rufus Reid, conguero Master Henry Gibson, and piano and kalimba player Muhal Richard Abrams. Joining in on drums is the long-working and propulsive Philadelphian, Billy James. These foundational, no-nonsense jazzmen helped to rein in some of Harris’ shaggy tendencies, and forced him to step up his chops. As had become his custom by this point, Harris delivers a deeply felt abstract blues in the form of Nightcap. The most crucial aspect of the album is the reunion of Harris and Abrams, high-school friends whose careers diverged only to meet again in these songs. The heart of the album is the blending of Harris’ beefy funk with Abrams’ more cerebral conceptions. Instant Death Eddie Harris.
