Oliver Lake Quintet: Fire Waltz
An intriguing choice by saxophonist Oliver Lake and his quintet: taking on Eric Dolphy’s composition, Fire Waltz. Anyone who’s heard this piece can’t help but hear Eric Dolphy in the background, or maybe even the foreground, and even visualize the walls of the old Five Spot, where Dolphy recorded the piece. Oliver Lake has the voice to give Dolphy his due, yet make it recognizably his own – as does trumpeter Freddy Hendrix, who is no echo of Booker Little.
