Originally recorded by Rudy Van Gelder in August 1960 and released in February 1961, Caribè shows the great multi instrumentalist Eric Dolphy in the unexpected context of a Latin Jazz combo. A fascinating combination of apparently distant elements where Dolphy's masterful playing shines through every harmony and groove displayed by this solid Latin-Jazz quintet featuring Juan Amalbert – congas, Gene Casey – piano, Charlie Simons – vibraphone, Bill Ellington – bass and Manny Ramos - drums, timbales


  • Eric Dolphy - alto sax, flute, bass clarinet
  • Juan Amalbert - congas
  • Gene Casey - piano
  • Bill Ellington - bass
  • Charlie Simons - vibes
  • Manny Ramos - drums, timbales

Recorded in Englewood Cliffs, NJ, August 19, 1960
