2 ORIGINAL ALBUMS ON 1 CD
This release includes two complete original LPs featuring the great Eric Dolphy in a small group format with Mal Waldron on piano and Ron Carter on cello & bass. Both albums were recorded within a one-week period in June 1961. "Where?" (New Jazz NJLP8265) was issued under Ron Carter’s name, while "The Quest" (New Jazz NJLP8269) was made under the leadership of Mal Waldron. Booker Ervin on tenor saxophone (on The Quest only), bassists George Duvivier and Joe Benjamin (one on each LP), and drummer Charlie Persip (on both albums) complete the personnel.
