Hey folks,

Check this Eric Dolphy video! Simply amazing! Jesus Christ! What a tone! What a creative playing!

I want to play like him when I grow up! :)


By the way, the band: Johnny Coles, Eric Dolphy, Clifford Jordan , Jaki Byard, Charles Mingus and Dannie Richmond.

Cheers,

Raf.

Wonderful stuff!! I've not seen that clip before, but there's a lot of radio and TV recordings from that '64 tour of Europe - the full 22 minute version of that tune can be seen here - http://youtu.be/8sLOZ_ZClfc and a search of Youtube will reveal a lot more from this incredible band

Thanks for the link mate! This band was indeed awesome!

I often wonder how Dolphy´s tone on alto was directly influenced by his bass clarinet embouchure/playing.

He seems to transport a lot of the clarinet´s tone to the alto somehow and that´s, among other things, what makes his alto tone so amazing!

By the way, I believe Eric passed away about three months after this concert.

Cheers,

Raf.
