Eric Dolphy and Booker Little Memorial Album (APE+CUE)
Please keep seeding as long as you can.
Despite its generic name, this is really the third volume of music that dates from one night in the short-lived and legendary Eric Dolphy Quintet with Booker Little. Recorded live at the Five Spot with pianist Mal Waldron, bassist Richard Davis, and drummer Ed Blackwell, this CD reissue consists of two fairly lengthy renditions of Eric Dolphy compositions: "Number Eight" and "Booker's Waltz." Since there is only around a half-hour of music on the set, it is unfortunate that the advanced performances (which are also available as part of Eric Dolphy's nine-CD box set) were not combined with one of the two previous volumes.
