Captured after leaving Prestige Records, and just before the timeless classic Out To Lunch! album, Musical Prophet: The Expanded 1963 New York Studio Sessions is the first official release of previously-unissued Eric Dolphy studio recordings in over 30 years! This release contains the under-appreciated masterpiece albums Conversations and Iron Man recorded in New York City in July of 1963. Originally produced by Alan Douglas with 85 minutes of extremely rare, previously-unissued recordings from the sessions, the tapes had been stored in a suitcase with Dolphy’s personal belongings and given to friends Hale and Juanita Smith before he embarked on his fateful European trip in 1964. Five decades later, the suitcase was given to flautist/educator James Newton who then connected with Zev Feldman at Resonance and began working on this definitive edition of Dolphy’s 1963 New York studio sessions with the only copies of these tapes known to exist.

The deluxe 3CD set features jazz greats such as saxophonist Sonny Simmons, trumpeter Woody Shaw, bassist Richard Davis and NEA Jazz Master vibraphonist Bobby Hutcherson plus others. The exhaustive 100-page booklet includes rare and previously unpublished photos by Chuck Stewart, Jean-Pierre Leloir, Val Wilmer and others; essays by jazz author and scholar Robin D.G. Kelley, Douglas label manager Michael Lemesre, Japanese Dolphy scholar Masakazu Sato, and co-producers Zev Feldman and James Newton; interviews with jazz icons Sonny Rollins, Sonny Simmons, Richard Davis, Henry Threadgill, Nicole Mitchell, Steve Coleman, David Murray, Bill Laswell, Oliver Lake, Han Bennink, Joe Chambers, Dave Liebman, Marty Ehrlich and close Dolphy friend Juanita Smith. Also included are words by McCoy Tyner, Ornette Coleman, John Coltrane and Charles Mingus. This is truly the holy grail of long-lost Eric Dolphy recordings.
