Where?, often reissued under Eric Dolphy's name, was Ron Carter's date. His inclusion of the searching, probing Dolphy with veterans like George Duvivier and Mal Waldron reflects Carter's lifelong concern with developing fresh approaches while maintaining a firm connection to the roots of jazz. In this more or less mainstream context, Dolphy flourished, the creative tension between conventional structures and his visionary conception producing remarkable solos on all three of his horns. Carter's own solos are among the finest of his early career, and there is a delightful duet with Duvivier, backed by the lightest of comping from Waldron's and Persip's nearly subliminal, but swinging, brush work.

with George Duvivier, Charles Persip
