Eric Dolphy at the Five Spot
Concertzender Live – Saturday 26 November, 14:00 CET. Woodwind player Eric Dolphy was a cutting-edge musician, just like Charles Mingus, John Coltrane and Ornette Coleman. He worked with all three, on stage and in record studios. In July 1961, Dolphy, flanked by trumpeter Booker Little, spent two weeks at New York’s Five Spot Café. On the evening of July 16, the famous sound engineer Rudy Van Gelder was present with his recording equipment.
