5.0 out of 5 stars When Dolphy's On Board, It's Never "Straight Ahead", November 4, 2000
This review is from: Straight Ahead (Audio CD)
"Straight Ahead" is the third and final collaboration between tenor saxophonist and noted arranger Oliver Nelson, and iconoclastic reedman Eric Dolphy. The first was Nelson's "Screamin' The Blues" also on the Prestige label, and the second was the famous "Blues and the Abstract Truth," recorded for Impulse a week earlier than "Straight Ahead." On March 1, 1961 Nelson and Dolphy went into the studio for the third time, along with Richard Wyands on piano, George Duvivier on bass and Roy Haynes on drums. Five of the album's six tunes are Nelson originals ("Ralph's New Blues is a Milt Jackson composition), with "Images" and the title-track the standouts. The results were magical on this session, but not quite as impressive as the Impulse date. All the same, fans of Nelson and Dolphy will enjoy plotting this course "Straight Ahead."
