Oliver Nelson and Eric Dolphy combined their superb talents on just four albums, all of them recorded in 1960-61. All four LPs are included here in their entirety in chronological order. The albums, all of them true classics, consist of Nelson’s Screamin’ the Blues (Prestige 8243) and The Blues and the Abstract Truth (Impulse AS-5), Eddie “Lockjaw” Davis’ Trane Whistle (Prestige 7206), and Straight Ahead (New Jazz NJLP8255), which showcase both Nelson and Dolphy as co-leaders. The great Roy Haynes is the drummer on all four LPs.
