A 120-gram vinyl re-issue of the classic jazz album, this is the first of three sets that document the Eric Dolphy/Booker Little quintet's playing at the Five Spot. It features a group made up of pianist Mal Waldron, bassist Richard Davis and drummer Ed Blackwell really stretching out during long versions of Little's "Aggression" and the standard "Like Someone in Love."

Dolphy's playing — whether on alto, bass clarinet or flute — always defied categorization, while Little (who passed away less than three months later) was the first new voice on the trumpet to emerge after Clifford Brown's death in 1956. An excellent set that records what may have been Dolphy's finest group ever, as well as one of that era's best working bands.
