Eddie Harris : Although he was one of the most popular jazz musicians of his day (and the first to receive a gold record), his inclusion in his repertoire of types of music other than jazz and his incorporation of comedy into his act led many jazz critics to consider him insufficiently committed to jazz.

@allmusic : For quite some time, he was far more popular with audiences than with critics, many of whom denigrated him for his more commercially successful ventures.

@last.fm : From 1970 to 1975 he experimented with new instruments of his own invention (the reed trumpet was a trumpet with a saxophone mouthpiece, the saxobone was a saxophone with a trombone mouthpiece, and the guitorgan was a combination of guitar and organ), with singing the blues, with jazz-rock, and with comic R & B numbers such as “That is Why You’re Overweight.”
