Don Sugar Cane Harris  1973  Cup Full of Dreams

Blues violinist SUGAR CANE HARRIS is on fire during this 1973 studio session for BASF, which features many of his regular collaborators of the period. Harris, who wrote all of the material heard on the date, mixes elements of jazz, country, and rock into his brand of blues. He is brilliant in the midtempo blues Runnin' Away, though none of the solos that follow measure up to the leader's. Hattie's Bathtub is a catchy blues waltz. But it is the extended composition Cup Full of Dreams that showcases Harris' lyricism on his instrument. One amusing aspect of the LP is the obvious presence of guitarist HARVEY MANDEL, who evidently could not be named for contractual reasons, though his photo is barely disguised with an old-fashioned black bar over his eyes.
