“So Long, Eric” 50 years Memorial Tribute to Eric Dolphy

Exactly 50 years ago, on June 29, 1964, Eric Dolphy passed away in a hospital in Berlin at the age of 36, because his condition of diabetes was not recognized (apparently no blood test conducted) when he collapsed on stage and was hospitalized.

To pay tribute to his great talent, we played the tune that Charles Mingus named after him, when Eric announced that he would not return to the US together with the band, but remain in Europe. “So long, Eric” played at a community center concert organized by the wonderful Ruth Lenz-Weisshaupt on June 29, 2014 with the wonderful Keiko on piano and myself on Sax, accompanied by the digital all stars. Enjoy!
