Background: Released in 1961, Mighty Like a Rose was the second album by saxophonist Eddie Harris.
Mighty Like a Rose was Eddie Harris’ follow-up to the smash Exodus to Jazz, and it probably comes as no surprise that it’s mightily similar in sound and style. One can hardly blame Harris for taking essentially the same approach; it’s not every day that a jazz artist’s debut LP makes him a million-selling star overnight…. Harris’ playing strikes a balance between cool bop and straightforward soul-jazz, though it’s possible to hear the influence of Detroiter Yusef Lateef beginning to creep in. It’s all well-executed, and Harris’ command of the highest ranges of his instrument is as lovely as ever, making this date worthwhile for anyone who loved the sound of Exodus to Jazz.
