"The music from this set is tight, mildly dissonant hard bop that in fact sounds much more 'inside' than contemporaneous dates from Waldron, Max Roach or Booker Ervin.
- All About Jazz

"... historically significant music that changed the fabric of modern jazz ..."
- Audiophile Audition

This classic live jazz recording documents the first of three sets played one night in July 1961 by the Eric Dolphy/Booker Little quintet during a two week stint at the Five Spot in New York City. (Additional performances recorded that same night have been released on separate volumes.) The quintet, featuring pianist Mal Waldron, bassist Richard Davis and drummer Ed Blackwell, really gets the chance to stretch out on these extended tunes. Captures what may have been Dolphy's finest group ever, as well as one of that era's best working bands. Sadly, it was short-lived as Little died less than three months later. This reissue includes an alternate take of Bee Vamp as a bonus track.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
