Eric Allan Dolphy, Jr.    1928-1964

 

 

In the jazz of the 1960s,

Eric Dolphy was an original:

 

a hero to some,

but also a mystery,

a virtuosic improviser

searching for ways

of expression outside

of common practice.

 

He died

of an undiagnosed

diabetic condition

in Berlin in June 1964, at 36,

old enough to consolidate

his experience and wisdom

but perhaps too young

to settle his reputation,

which had by then taken

some knocks from those

who found his music

abstract or abrasive.
