"First thing I have to say about this album-- get the IMPORTversion! Check amazon's page for the regularversion for a track list and samples.Next, I have to say that the material on this album, most of it recorded in 1963, is absolutely great for anyone who liked Out To Lunch. It's a DOUBLE CD set, with several tracks featuring Bobby Hutcherson on vibes, so you can get a look at Bobby and Eric developing their rapport for the subsequent Out To Lunch. But there's much more than just great vibe work. The real highlights for me are Eric's duets with Richard Davis on bass. "Come Sunday" and "Alone Together" feature Eric on bass clarinet, while "Ode to Charlie Parker" has him on flute. Listening to Richard Davis' arco bass on "Come Sunday" is the best I've heard in jazz, hands down. And compare "Ode" with the version Eric recorded on Far Cry. What a difference!Also featured on this album are 2 so-called unreleased bonus tracks. One, "Wherever I Go", is actually from Eric's days with Chico Hamilton. "Stormy Weather" is with Eric Mingus. even though they're not truly unreleasaed, they're still worth a listen.I also loved Eric's solo alto sax version of "Love Me". Check it out! Okay, if you are considering buying Iron Man, Music Matador, or Conversations albums, GET THIS instead (Dolphy Sound IMPORT)."
