Comments

Equivalent release: Limelight LS-86013 (stereo).

1st issue: original gatefold cover with original booklet.

Inside The Groove

The true genius Eric Dolphy's famous last album, from original Holland Fontana recording
(original issue was Fontana [H] 681 008-ZL).

Personal Impression (and brief notes)

Eric Dolphy had been a true rock-solid genius - from his first recordings to this last recordings, Eric had been Eric and sounded like nobody else. Listen to this challenging, thrilling and awesome bass-clarinet play on Monk's “Epistrophy”. The pianist Misja Mengelberg hits the piano so hard like Monk-ish. An awesome vibration of music. Other tunes are also great. A must-be for all jazz listeners.

ADDITION: I said above it was his “last” album, but it is NOT a really his last recording. As seen in Eric Dolphy's discography, the very last recording on June 11, 1964 (nine days after “Last Date”'s recordings) is now available on CD. Thank you Görgen Antonsson-san (who maintains detailed discographies of Howlin' Wolf and Elmore James) for pointing this out.

Strictly Personal Rating (to what extent I could enjoy this album)

10 out of 10
