Eric Dolphy enjoyed a very short career as a bandleader, with only four albums being released before his unexpected death from diabetes in 1964. He had recorded extensively however, and numerous packages of material have appeared in the years since. Here And There was recorded over an eighteen month period, between April 1960 and September 1961 and features Eric on alto saxophone, bass clarinet and flute. Of particular interest on the album is the track God Bless The Child, an unconventional bass clarinet solo that became something of a regular part of his live dates. The remaining four tracks feature two Eric originals, a version of Mal Waldron’s Status Seeking (on which Waldron plays piano) and the standard Don’t Blame Me. The end result is one of Eric’s most compelling albums.
