We gave it a B

Late reedman Dolphy was a defining artist of the new jazz of the ’60s. When teamed with peers who also savored dissonance and the urge to test boundaries (including trumpeter Booker Little and pianist Mal Waldron), he made timeless, influential music. The nine-CD set also includes his more reined-in first Prestige efforts and some too-smooth Latin sides.
