"Oliver Nelson made some great stuff with Dolphy. 'The Blues and the Abstract Truth' (below) is the best known (and probably the Best), but the other 2 are very good as well."

"Great live music. Repetition of tunes is because they only taped the music they were considering releasing, and wanted to choose the best takes. This is the only slight downside - the music is superb."

"This seems to be the best current issue of two important Dolphy albums - 'Iron Man' and 'Conversations'. Lots of great music here, including a solo performance of 'Love Me' that is spellbinding."

"This recording of a Dolphy performance at the University of Illinois was discovered in 1999. Magnificent solo performance of 'God Bless the Child' on bass clarinet."

"Frequently cited as Dolphy's masterpiece, it is a wonderful album. There is perhaps less spectacular soloing from Eric than on other albums, but a great overall effect."

"One of the greatest recordings of the 1960s. A great line-up and vibrant, brilliant music. Dolphy was on great form."

"There are a few of Mingus' 1964 concerts available, but this is my favourite. This includes Johnny Coles (who missed much of the tour with illness) and is the better for it."

"Not the last music that Dolphy recorded, but the last great offering, with an excellent European band (including Misha Mengelberg on piano)."
