Lyrics printed on sleeve:

“The Miracle”

The miracle is… that the layers continue
to be stripped away each time uncov’ring
a center more brilliant and revealing
than the one before.

Amazing… that this should be the way
our love our knowledge and our lives
keep
unfolding
together
leaving us constantly renewed.

Knowing you exist anywhere in this universe
makes my world that much larger
and that much more filled
with light.

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]

Eric Dolphy – flute, alto saxophone / Freddie Hubbard – trumpet / Bobby Hutcherson – vibraphone / Richard Davis – bass / Anthony Williams – drums

Sun Ra And His Arkestra – Springtime Again (1979)

Springtime Again is from the album Sleeping Beauty  by  Sun Ra And His Arkestra.

This is the great late-night Sun-Ra chillout album you never knew about. The band had been working in a more groove-oriented setting off and on for over a year, as evidenced by the albums Lanquidity and On Jupiter, with both featuring prominent electric bass and electric guitar. Sleeping Beauty picks up right where On Jupiter left off, with the gentle, swaying “Springtime Again” echoing the same mellow vibe of “Seductive Fantasy” from On Jupiter. A skittering intro coalesces as different instruments pick up bits of the melody, which is then fully expressed by the horn section and ensemble vocals. It’s a simple two-chord vamp, with beautiful solos that seem to embody the reawakening and rebirth of springtime. There’s a good reason copies of this album go for several hundred dollars on the collector’s market, but it really deserves a proper release so more people can hear it. Outstanding. [source]

Booker Little – Moods In Free Time (1961)

Moods In Free Time is from the album Out Front by Booker Little, recorded in New York, spring 1961, and first released on Candid ame year.

Booker Little was the first trumpet soloist to emerge in jazz after the death of Clifford Brown to have his own sound. His tragically brief life (he died at age 23 later in 1961) cut short what would have certainly been a major career. Little, on this sextet date with multi-reedist Eric Dolphy, trombonist Julian Priester, and drummer Max Roach, shows that his playing was really beyond bebop. His seven now-obscure originals (several of which deserve to be revived) are challenging for the soloists and there are many strong moments during these consistently challenging and satisfying performances.

Eric Dolphy – Alt Saxophone, Flute, Bass Clarinet
