Eric Dolphy – Something Sweet, Something Tender (1964)

Second track on the album Out to Lunch by Eric Dolphy.

Much has been written about Dolphy’s odd time signatures, wide-interval leaps, and flirtations with atonality. And those preoccupations reach their peak on Out to Lunch, which is less rooted in bop tradition than anything Dolphy had ever done.  [source]

Harold Land Quintet – Stylin’ (1968)

An unrecognized classic. The Peace-Maker is one of the high-points of the Hutcherson-Land collaboration. Until recently, it wasn’t even available on CD. But it was re-issued in Japan. It’s worth paying the high-cost import price for this disc. It’s wonderful. [Source]

Personnel: Harold Land (ts, fl); Bobby Hutcherson (vib); Joe Sample (p); Buster Williams (b); Donald Bailey (d, harm). Recording Date & Location: 11 Dec 1967; 26 Feb 1968, Hollywood, CA.
