Overview

Prestige Profiles, Vol. 5 contains previously released tracks taken from alto saxophonist and bass clarinetist Eric Dolphy's short stint with the label in the early '60s. The ten tracks, aimed at the casual listener, include the Dolphy-penned classics "G.W.," "Miss Ann," "Far Cry," and "Serene." With Dolphy backed by an extraordinary roster of jazz musicians including Freddie Hubbard, Jaki Byard, Booker Little, Ron Carter, Mal Waldron, and Roy Haynes, this is an excellent mid-line sampler for the novice. For a limited time, the first ten volumes in this series include a free bonus compilation CD of Prestige artists.

Dolphy is a recent discovery for me. I had heard him play as part of a group such as with Mingus but here I got to hear straight Eric Dolphy.I'm impressed. Here in Dolphy is a very powerful musician, determined to stretch the boundaries of his craft. He set out to shake folks up and he does.I'm sorry it took me 40 years to discover him.
