So Long, Eric! - Homage To Eric Dolphy

Alexander von Schlippenbach And Aki Takase - So Long, Eric! - Homage To Eric Dolphy

For this tribute to Eric Dolphy, Alexander von Schlippenbach and Aki Takase have put together an ensemble with some of the best interpreters of Dolphy's music. In addition to Aki Takase and Alexander von Schlippenbach on grand pianos, Han Bennink and Karl Berger, two of Dolphy's former collaborators, can be heard on drums and vibraphone.

The band is completed by one of the most exciting front lines on the European jazz scene with Rudi Mahall, Nils Wogram, Axel D*ouml*rner, Henrik Walsdorff and Tobias Delius.

Bold arrangements and visionary playing bring out the exploding expressivity of Dolphy's compositions and prove that - even 50 years after Dolphy's death - they sound fresh and relevant.
