“The new bishop of the best Italian and European Jazz”
[A. Bazzurro, All About Jazz IT]

"Very special and original instrumentalist; fantastic."
[Franco D’Andrea – Premio Gaslini]

Clarinetist composer Federico Calcagno emphasizes the importance of multi-instrumentalist Eric Dolphy’s music and influence through the sextet “The Dolphians”.
"From Another Planet" has been catalogued in the list of the best 100 albums of 2019 by JAZZIT Italian magazine. This sextet shows a great collective interaction and enthusiasm; it declares love to the Blue Note sounds from the ‘60s, re-elaborating the masterpiece Out to Lunch and giving a contemporary rebirth to Eric Dolphy’s less known composition Jim Crow through a suite in five movements. Moreover, the album is characterized by the alternation and mixture of original compositions with Dolphy’s sparkling arrangements.
"The Dolphians” aim is to continue what Dolphy left at the moment of his premature death through immagination, creativity, recreation and high risk.
