Eric Dolphy: Out There (CD: New Jazz RVG)Eric Dolphy: Out There (CD: New Jazz RVG)
Dolphy's second album as a leader is a departure from his first, Outward Bound, where he used a conventional front line (his alto with trumpeter Freddie Hubbard) albeit differently, in that by utilizing Ron Carter's bowed cello as a second voice he achieves a chamber-like avant jazz. It was quite daring for its time and again spotlights Eric's bass clarinet and flute as well as, on one number ("Eclipse," a Charles Mingus composition), conventional clarinet. (Fantasy, Inc.)

Eric Dolphy: Outward Bound (CD: New Jazz RVG)
Dolphy had left his native California and come east as part of Chico Hamilton's group, settling in New York in 1960 and becoming part of Charles Mingus's group. This first recording as a leader brought comparisons with Ornette Coleman but the two were really parallel figures in the then-emerging avant-garde. Dolphy did not eschew "changes," as Coleman did, but he used them in new ways. This LP was significant not only for his alto saxophone but introduced his individual approach to the flute and, particularly, the bass clarinet. (Fantasy, Inc.)

Eric Dolphy with Booker Little: Far Cry (CD: New Jazz/ Fantasy)Eric Dolphy with Booker Little: Far Cry (CD: New Jazz/ Fantasy)
A quarter of a century after his death at 36, the astonishing saxophonist and flutist Eric Dolphy is still influencing and inspiring the most adventuresome jazz musicians. Dolphy was daring and iconoclastic while fully immersed in the jazz tradition. His musicianship was so thorough that innovators like Charles Mingus and John Coltrane held him in awe. In a dream partnership, Dolphy and trumpeter Booker Little made a handful of recordings in 1960 and '61, shortly before Little's own premature death. The first of them are in this album. Included is the rare "Serene," never before issued with the session's other material. (Fantasy, Inc.)

Eric Dolphy: Out To Lunch (CD: Blue Note RVG)
Almost dated avant garde now -- but not every fan's cup of jazz -- Eric Dolphy's work still demands notice and admiration. As multi-instrumentalist, he defined a new jazz role for flute and bass-clarinet; as improviser, his supposedly "free form" music invariably follows fixed chord sequences and has -- despite appearances -- a strong shape and discipline. Out to Lunch, from 1964, brings together Dolphy with trumpet Freddie Hubbard and vibist Bobby Hutcherson, plus Richard Davis, bass, and Tony Williams, drums. This album has great variety of mood, form and rhythm, and is best approached as a continuum/ entity. A.B. Spellman observes, "this is not music to roller skate by." It is -- he adds -- muscularly individualistic, invoking a strong, often emotional reaction in the listener. Quite so. Recommended. (Andrew Clark, Editor, Riffs & Choruses: A New Jazz Anthology. Continuum Publishing.)

Much of what remained of his final year was spent in the company of Mingus's touring band, but Dolphy seems much more at home with an awesome line-up typical of the "outside-in" sessions on Blue Note during the mid-sixties. Here, he is reunited with the trumpeter Freddie Hubbard, who had played on Dolphy's Prestige debut, along with the percussive, chimings of Bobby Hutcherson's vibes and the freewheeling drums of Tony Williams. There is an incredible sense of fun and warmth in these performances which display exceptional unity and cohesion yet remain utterly free of the strictures of harmony or rhythm. 'Hat And Beard' sees Dolphy paying homage to the great pianist Thelonius Monk and 'Gazzelloni', a tribute to the classical musician Severiano, should be heard for an example of how utterly original Dolphy was as flautist.

Eric Dolphy: Last Date (CD: EmArcy)
'When you hear music, after it's over, it's gone in the air. You can never capture it again.' Dolphy's famous words heard at the end of this album, incorrectly believed for some time to be the 'last date'. Whether the final recording or not, it contains one of his greatest flute solos on 'You Don't Know What Love Is' and accompanied by a rhythm section of Mengelberg, Schols and Bennink, the most responsive from his European records.
