Yesterday on the Sunday Jazz Show we spun an epic burner from volume two of the legendary recordings by the Eric Dolphy-Booker Little Quintet; a band that “set the jazz world on it’s collective ear” in 1961. The 17-minute workout “Aggression” is a fantastic example of the contrasting styles of Dolphy’s burning, searching playing, here on bass clarinet, juxtaposed with Little’s rapid-fire, yet smooth and sophisticated trumpet. Held in check by a stunning rhythm section of Mal Waldron on piano, comping and keeping the peace, along with Richard Davis on bass and Ed Blackwell on drums. If you missed it – you can check it out on youtube here.
