Eric Dolphy - Conversations LP (Sowing, 2022 reissue)
"Limited repress. Sowing Records present a reissue of Eric Dolphy's "Conversations," originally released in 1963. A landmark in Eric Dolphy's discography. Conversations is the result of a historical studio session held in New York in 1963 with Dolphy at the core of various line-up configurations featuring a bunch of young innovators like Prince Lasha, Sonny Simmons, Woody Shaw, Bobby Hutcherson, Clifford Jordan, Richard Davis... Each of the four tracks is a fine example of Dolphy's highly eclectic language including an alto sax solo of rare beauty ("Love Me"), a landmark duet with Richard Davis ("Alone Together") and two magnificent quintet pieces ("Jitterbug Waltz" and "Music Matador"). A real piece of art from a true jazz genius in the early New Thing era. Clear vinyl."
