Eric Dolphy’s Prestige Recordings Showcase His Innovation 

Source: Bandcamp Daily.

Eric Dolphy’s recorded legacy is both astonishingly brief and extraordinarily rich. He entered the studio for his first recording as a leader 10 weeks before his 32nd birthday in 1960. He died nine days after he turned 36 in 1964. In that short time, he made dozens of recordings, some on his own, others in the company of legendary peers—records that were groundbreaking upon their release six decades ago, and remain profoundly influential today.
