Today Marks Eric Dolphy's Final Concert Album

On this day in 1964, jazz great Eric Dolphy recorded what would be his final concert album, "Last Date" in Holland. He would die on the 29th of the same month.

Eric Dolphy has an unorthodox style and he was highly influential in avant-garde and free jazz; his performances with John Coltrane are now considered staples of jazz, and he became a great band leader in his own right. He died at an early age where jazz really took off in the craziest of ways.

Below is a track of the concert, called "Hypochristmutreefuzz". Don't ask, just listen.
