So long, Eric! For this tribute to Eric Dolphy, Alexander von Schlippenbach and Aki Takase have put together an ensemble with some of the best interpreters of Dolphys music. In addition to pianists Aki Takase and Alexander von Schlippenbach, Han Bennink and Karl Berger, two of Dolphys 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: Rudi Mahall, Nils Wogram, Axel Dörner, Henrik Walsdorff and Tobias Delius. Bold arrangements and visionary playing bring out the exploding expressivity of Dolphys compositions and prove that even 50 years after Dolphys death they sound fresh and relevant.
