Overview

This CD has a very interesting lineup of musicians: Eric Dolphy (sticking to bass clarinet throughout), pianist McCoy Tyner, bassist Reggie Workman and drummer Mel Lewis. Dolphy was actually touring with the John Coltrane Quintet (of which Tyner and Workman were a part) at the time, and apparently Elvin Jones had passport problems, so Lewis subbed for him. The playing on these four lengthy standards, including a 23½-minute "On Green Dolphin Street," is fine, but unfortunately, the recording quality from this Munich, Germany concert is pretty bad, making much of this historic music...for Dolphy completists.
