In the fall of 1962, multi-instrumentalist Eric Dolphy invited keyboard genius Herbie Hancock to join his band. Although their association wouldn't last beyond the year and would produce only one live recording, the intensity of their encounter and the undeniable importance of both musicians as forward thinkers, make this a momentous historical collaboration. Widely regarded as two of the most influential and innovative musicians and composers in jazz history, Dolphy's tragically brief career marks a sharp contrast to Hancock's nearly 50 years in the industry. This rare edition features the one-and-only recording of their groundbreaking quintet for the first time ever on CD.

"This rare session marks the sole recording of the collaboration between
two of the most innovative composers and musicians in jazz. A valuable
release of great historical importance."
