Analogue Productions releases 25 of the most collectible, rarest, most audiophile-sounding Rudy Van Gelder recordings ever made in their Prestige Stereo Series on Hybrid Stereo SACD.
Dolphy is joined by Booker Little, Jaki Byard, Ron Carter and Roy Haynes.
In Far Cry without leaving form behind, Dolphy incorporated the spirit of adventure and abandon with which free jazz at its best infused freshness into jazz.
"On this session Dolphy is joined by two like-minded weirdos in Little and Byard, as well as an able rhythm section in Carter and Haynes... Everything that weve come to love about Dolphy is on display here, from the unorthodox instruments to the stuttering, belligerent solos that seem to go from New York to LA by way of Saturn... Like Dolphy, Little was another prodigy who died early in his career; his smoothly wandering lines provide a sharp contrast to Dolphys prickly approach. Byard, of course, has an affection for all styles of piano playing and often welds them into the same passage, a technique he would really perfect in the company of Roland Kirk. At the time, this was forward thinking music that even today has a whiff of the avant-garde." - David Rickert, www.allaboutjazz.com, November 2002
