Eric Dolphy - Hot House
From Berlin Concerts (1961, enja 3007-2)
Eric Dolphy playing one of the very be-bop hymns: Hot House by Tadd Dameron in a nineteen minutes long version.
He is in best shape musically and blows out all the typical Dolphy-style phrases. This LP recorded in Berlin in 1961 where he died three years later gives an excellent insight in what makes Dolphy’s playing so significant.
