Extracted from the liner notes:
"This record was produced during the early part of 1964, when Eric Dolphy and producer Alan Douglas decided to experiment with Eric's original compositions.
Two approaches were agreed upon. One was of clear simplicity; Eric on reed instruments and Richard Davis on bass. The other was more involved - a ten piece orchestra of young men who understood and admired Eric's work.
The recording sessions took place late at night in a very relaxed studio for five successive nights. In this environment the playing of Eric Dolphy, Richard Davis and the other musicians was unbelievably inspired. So much was created, individual compositions went from "almost commercial" to "very far out."
Two albums were produced from that beautiful week. The first, called 'Conversations,' was released through FM Records (now available through the Roulette Record catalogue). On this, the second, is incorporated performances that were considered too futuristic to put out at that time.
Eric died in 1964, and he would have been happy to know this L.P. has been released. Douglas International thanks Mrs. Sadie Dolphy, Eric's mother, and John Carter for their help in recreating one of the most imaginative experiences in Eric Dolphy's musical career."
