The Latin Jazz Quintet + Eric Dolphy - Caribe (1960)
A masterful meeting of Eric Dolpy and The Latin Jazz Quintet -- a record that shows a rare Latin side of Dolphy's talents, but one that's totally great!

The core group here are the ensemble led by conga player Juan Amalbert with vibes, piano, bass, and percussion -- a group who helped push the Latin jazz style of earlier 50s work into much hipper territory during the 60s -- usually by adding in a reedman like Dolphy! Eric's blowing here on alto, flute, and bass clarinet -- showing a great sensitivity to the core groove of the record, but also managing to cut in these edgier moments that really open things up!

The mix of vibes and Dolphy alone is worth the price of admission -- especially when heard in an "inside" way that's quite different than his later meeting with Bobby Hutcherson -- but the overall groove really holds the record together wonderfully, and makes it appealing for fans of both Latin and modern jazz!
