2009 CD release.
Walt was a true original with a unique sound and distinctive approach to the vibraphone, taking forward the path laid out by Hampton right through to Milt Jackson and beyond. Dickerson made quite an impact when he first burst- on to the then embryonic free Jazz scene as evidenced by his being voted as New Star 1962 in the prestigious Down Beat critics' poll. In spite of this, wider Jazz recognition never came, aided no doubt by long periods of seeming inactivity.
After recording four albums for Prestige in the early sixties, the somewhat enigmatic Walt dropped out until 1975 when the ubiquitous Masahiko Yuh recorded this album in his hometown of Philadelphia with Wilbur Ware on bass and drummer Andrew Cyrille.
