Tone Tantrum is an album by American jazz pianist Gene Harris recorded in 1977 and released on the Blue Note label.[1]

Reception[edit]

The Allmusic review by Jason Ankeny awarded the album 3½ stars stating "Gene Harris never veered closer to mainstream jazz-funk than Tone Tantrum -- a slick, propulsive record... Still, while the sound is radio-friendly, the quality and complexity of the performances serve as a potent reminder that Tone Tantrum is first and foremost a jazz record, and a solid (if unconventional) one at that, purists be damned.[2]
