AllMusic Review by

Taken from Eric Dolphy's much-recorded European tour of 1961, this set matches the remarkable multi-instrumentalist with pianist Lalo Schifrin, bassist Bob Cunningham and drummer Mel Lewis, performing long versions of "On Green Dolphin Street" (over 23 minutes), "Softly As in a Morning Sunrise" and "The Way You Look Tonight." Although the rhythm section is conventional, Dolphy really tears into these standards, making this imported LP worth searching for.
