This CD features an early incarnation of Chico Hamilton’s band featuring a then unknown Eric Dolphy. Utilizing cello and guitar in the front line along with Dolphy’s multiple instrumental prowess lends an unusual air to the proceedings. Recorded just before Dolphy’s Prestige debut, one can hear his sound already fully formed. In addition to Gershman’s cello stylings, there is an ambience of familiarity for those who’ve admired Dolphy’s recordings with Ron Carter on said instrument. Nowhere near as challenging as Dolphy’s later recordings, this Hamilton led date is still a joy to hear, with its swinging West Coast vibe and almost chamber-esque feel. “Pretty Little Theme,” “Little Lost Bear,” and “Lullaby for Dreamers” are short pieces that exemplify the pseudo-classical aspect of the band. In contrast “Opening” features blistering Bop tempos while “Cawn Pawn” is a deliciously slinky Blues groove. This short but sweet set is a welcome discovery and a boon to Dolphy collectors.
