This is the weakest of Eric Dolphy's three CDs that were recorded at a Copenhagen concert with a Danish rhythm section (pianist Bent Axen, bassist Erik Moseholm, and drummer Jorn Elniff). The problem is that there are three straight versions of the rather dull "In the Blues" and none are all that interesting. Much better is Dolphy's exploration (on bass clarinet) of "When Lights Are Low" and his alto feature during "Woody 'n You," but overall this is one of the less essential Eric Dolphy releases.
