What do you you think of when you hear the name Eric Dolphy? Songs like Fire Waltz with Mal Waldron...really blow me away. I notice the huge jumps in his lines...his angular patterns and yet...it all flows so smooothly. He plays the most outrageous lines and yet...It's legitimate language when he plays. Incredible. There is a lot to learn about playing music, in that mans playing. I think musicians will be unpacking the genius of his work and dedication for generations to come.
