Mal Waldron with Eric Dolphy & Booker Ervin - The Quest


This product is available on pre order with a limited discounted price.

Even after decades, Jazz pianist Mal Waldron’s compositions remain unparalleled in their willing transcendence of genre and expectations.

Back in 1962, Billboard mused that this album from Waldron, one of Billie Holiday’s go-to pianists, “Contains two ingredients that show his deep-rooted talent, melody, and swing.” An alluring mix of avant-garde and hard bop, the sextet is a well-rounded showcase of talent featuring Eric Dolphy on alto sax, Booker Ervin on tenor sax, Ron Carter on cello, Joe Benjamin on double bass, and Charlie Persip on drums. 

Recorded at Rudy Van Gelder Studios in New Jersey this new edition of the album is released as part of the Original Jazz Classics Series with all-analog mastering from the original tapes by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio.
