Ken McIntyre And Eric Dolphy
Ken McIntyre came up after Ornette Coleman and Eric Dolphy but before the large influx of avant-gardists in the mid-and late-Sixties. His phrasing was immediately recognizable as his own, heightened by a very personal, vocal sound. This album with Dolphy is a contrast between two players who, despite a similar outlook, were working on new ideas, each in his own way. They convene on five McIntyre originals and a Gershwin standard, backed by a rhythm section from the ranks of bebop.
