Product Description:

/Eric Dolphy/Booker Ervin.
Personnel: Mal Waldron, Eric Dolphy, Booker Ervin, Ron Carter, Joe Benjamin, Charles Persip.
This wonderful and luxurious set of seven Mal Waldron compositions is played by a sympathetic and inventive sextet. The featured soloists are saxophonists Booker Ervin and Eric Dolphy (also on clarinet). The rhythm section is bolstered with the presence of Ron Carter on cello, whose sonic range dances fluidly between the tamper of the reeds and the bottom of Joe Benjamin's bass.
"Warm Canto" is a gorgeous and pastoral work that brings to mind classical composer Ferde GrofT. Elsewhere--such as on the post-bop frolic "Warp and Woof"--Dolphy and Ervin alternate solos with delightful contrast and verve. Their thematic statements on the closing "Fire Waltz" make it impossible to picture anyone else's tones gracing the melody. Waldron's writing is full of his characteristic solemnity and subtlety.
