Eric Dolphy At The Five Spot Vol 2

CD (Item 516469) Prestige/OJC, 1961 — Condition: Used
Just Sold Out!

CD

❔

Searing live work from Eric Dolphy – part of a series of recordings that set a whole new standard for live jazz recording! The record features Dolphy going even farther out than on his studio sides from the time – as the record features very long tracks performed by a crack group that includes Booker Little on trumpet, Mal Waldron on piano, Richard Davis on bass, and Ed Blackwell on drums. Despite the length of the tracks, Dolphy isn't as far out as on later European live recordings – but the performance is a great example of his inventiveness within a mainstream structure, and the modernist tendencies of both Waldron and Little shine very brightly in the set. The concert was one of Little's last (and greatest) recordings – sometimes billed as a "memorial", even though he was still alive when it was done – and titles on this volume include "Aggression" and "Like Someone In Love".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.


Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible.

When you purchase a Used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use but if there are significant details or defects we will list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

Lonehill (Spain), 1963. Used
The title's possibly a bit misleading here – as the record's not so much a memorial to Dolphy, but a repackaging of sides that were repackaged originally as such in the 60s! If that's not confusing enough, let us just explain that the set features 9 tracks from Dolphy's important recordings ... CD

Eric Dolphy

Last Date
Fontana, 1964. Used
A fitting title for a great album – Eric Dolphy's last live recording, performed on June 2, 1964, with a trio of youngsters that included two of the greatest names in European avant garde jazz – Misha Mengelberg and Han Bennink! The sound is jagged and a bit free – showing the ... CD

Eric Dolphy

Iron Man
Douglas/Fuel 2000, 1962. Used
A seminal set from Eric Dolphy – one of his most perfectly realized moments at the head of a larger ensemble – and a record that definitely set the tone for countless spiritual jazz sessions of the 70s! Dolphy recorded this session for Alan Douglas in 1962, and it features a larger ... CD
Blue Note, 1964. Used
One of Eric Dolphy's lasting classics – and possibly the ultimate album of "new thing" jazz from the mid 60s! The record's got an even sharper edge than previous Dolphy recordings for Prestige – a really unique combination of instrumentation that includes Freddie Hubbard on ... CD

Eric Dolphy

Illinois Concert
Blue Note, 1963. Used
Amazing avant garde material from Dolphy – and never issued before in any form! The concert was recorded in 1963 at the University of Illinois, and it features some of the most "out" playing we've ever heard from Dolphy. He's backed by a trio comprised of Herbie Hancock, Eddie ... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1967. Used
The great altoist Sonny Criss is one of our favorite-ever reed players, and this beautiful session from his late 60's "comeback" period is a loving portrait of the wide range of his deep deep talents! On the surface, the record is deceptively simple, and only features Criss' work on alto ... CD

Count Basie

Basie Jam #2
Pablo/OJC, 1977. Used
Count Basie on piano with Benny Carter on alto sax, Eddie Lockjaw Davis on tenor sax, Clark Terry on trumpet, Al Grey on trombone, Joe Pass on guitar, John Heard on bass, and Louis Bellson on drums. CD

Bill Evans

How My Heart Sings
Riverside/OJC, 1962. Used
Magical music from the very first note – the kind of record you need to hear if you've ever doubted the genius of Bill Evans! The sound here is subtle, and supple – but still often more revolutionary than that of the countless albums it inspired in years to come – and Evans is ... CD

Joe Pass

Virtuoso #4
Pablo/OJC, 1973. Used 2 CDs
A double length collection of solo guitar tracks recorded in 1973, but not released until 1983. The format is a perfect showcase for the new sensitivity Joe Pass brought to his instrument at Pablo records and is light years away from some of the gimmicky records of a decade before – full of ... CD

Bill Evans

Explorations
Riverside/OJC, 1961. Used
The Bill Evans trio with Scott LaFaro on bass and Paul Motian on drums – a near-perfect lineup that forever raise the bar for jazz piano expression! The title here is certainly apt – because even though many of the tunes are shortish, Evans has a sense of exploration in the way he's ... CD

Gene Ammons on tenor saxophone, Frank Wess on flute, Joe Newman on trumpet, Bucky Pizzarelli and Kenny Burrell on guitar, Brother Jack McDuff and Johnny Hammond on organ, Hank Jones, Richard Wyands, and Tommy Flanagan on piano, Doug Watkins, Norman Edge, and Wendell Marshall on bass, Art Taylor, ... CD

Sonny Criss

I'll Catch The Sun
Prestige/OJC, 1969. Used
Excellent material from Sonny Criss' late 60's comeback period! By this point, Criss had a sound, style, and maturity that was unmatched by any of his LA contemporaries – a way of blowing the alto that was neither boppish, nor cliched in R&B modes – and instead burst forth with a ... CD
