Melvin Jackson was the bassist in Eddie Harris' very successful group of the time and his playing on Eddie's trippy and funky records for Atlantic is one of the factors that made them so great.
He made exactly one album in his catalog as a leader: funky skulls; pumping his upright through a Maestro G-2 filter box, a Boomerang, an Echoplex, and an Am peg amp, he made that thing sound like something from outer space.
