One night in 1961, July 16 to be exact, Prestige recorded a quintet that was playing a two-week engagement at the Five Spot on Cooper Square in lower Manhattan. There was no way of knowing that within three years, Eric Dolphy and Booker Little, two young budding giants of their time, would be dead. The seven numbers taped that night suddenly took on greater importance. With the hornmen is a rhythm section comprised of three powerful individuals–Mal Waldron, Richard Davis, and Ed Blackwell–who were able to blend their talents in a highly kinetic way that was most complementary to Eric and Booker. The latter's trumpet and Eric's bass clarinet and flute are heard in two elongated performances, Little's "Aggression" and the standard "Like Someone in Love."

with Booker Little, Mal Waldron, Richard Davis, Ed Blackwell
