Eric Dolphy (4)


‘Ellington Suite’ was an album by Chico Hamilton’s Quintet featuring Buddy Collette on Pacific Records.

There was another historic session about Ellington Suite

In August 1958, Chico Hamilton with Eric Dolphy recorded some famous Duke Ellington compositions.

Unfortunately another session was not issued for some reason.

Probably producer Richard Bock may have thought Dolphy’s playing was at times too radical.

But in 1995 John Cobley discovered a test pressing of the Hamilton recordings with Dolphy.

It was reissued ‘The Original Ellington Suite’.
