Info for Where?

Ron Carter, who came to prominence as the bassist for Miles Davis's second great quintet in the 1960s, made his first date as a leader with 1961's „Where?“. The band features the great Eric Dolphy on flute, saxophone, and bass clarinet, drummer Charlie Persip, pianist Mal Waldron, and bassist George Duvivier (who engages in occasional dialogue with Carter's cello).

The music synthesizes strains of post bop, free jazz, and chamber jazz, and the ensemble work is impressive, especially in the case of Dolphy. Two Randy Weston tunes crop up on the set list, including the sprightly, lyrical 'Saucer Eyes,' one of the album's highlights. Opener 'Rally,' which features Carter's bowed cello work, is another. Though not essential, the album should be of interest to fans of the musicians involved or the jazz of the time. Anyone intrigued by this album should also check out Dolphy's OUT THERE, which features Carter.
