Eric Dolphy's second album as a leader is a departure from his first, Outward Bound, where he used a conventional front line (his alto with trumpeter Freddie Hubbard) albeit differently, in that by utilizing Ron Carter's bowed cello as a second voice he achieves a chamber-like avant jazz. It was quite daring for its time and again spotlights Dolphy's bass clarinet and flute as well as, on one number ("Eclipse," a Charles Mingus composition), conventional clarinet.
