Reissue. Originally recorded by Rudy Van Gelder in August 1960 and released in February 1961, Caribè shows the great multi-instrumentalist Eric Dolphy in the unexpected context of the Latin Jazz Quintet. A fascinating combination of apparently distant elements where Dolphy’s masterful playing shines through every harmony and groove displayed by this solid Latin Jazz Quintet featuring Juan Amalbert (congas), Gene Casey (piano), Charlie Simons (vibraphone), Bill Ellington (bass), and Manny Ramos (drums, timbales).
