Eddie Harris is one of my favorite tenor players. I dig his phrasing (particularly the use of octave+ leaps) and his concept of groove. But, his sound is also great. Does anyone no what kind of horn/mouthpiece/reeds he used.

A Selmer long shank soloist C* was what he used. you can also check Eddie Harris.com for more info.

I read an interview somewhere that Eddie said he used a #3 reed on the C* mouthpiece.

Eddie said in a few interviews that he wanted to sound like Stan Getz.

Eddie Harris used Selmer Soloists period what does it matter if they were short or long, really! pictures don't always tell a story.
