Eric Dolphy's visionary spirit left an indelible impression on jazz, especially in shaping the earliest phases of the free jazz movement, but it also affected many facets of how the artform evolved through the early '60s. A composer and multi-instrumentalist who primarily played bass clarinet, flute, and alto sax, Dolphy is often credited with bringing bass clarinet into the jazz arena, and his approach to soloing on all of his instruments pushed the boundaries of bebop until the sounds resembled something new altogether. With improvisation characterized by wide intervals, contorting notes into non-musical or speech-like sounds, and unbridled, ecstatic expression, Dolphy's playing had a huge influence on John Coltrane as he moved away from structure and into free sounds. In addition to extensive work with Chico Hamilton, Charles Mingus, Ornette Coleman, and others, Dolphy was a bandleader in his own right, creating new levels of excitement and abstraction on his groundbreaking Blue Note debut, 1964's Out to Lunch! Dolphy's life was tragically cut short that same year when he was just 36, his brief time on the planet impacting the entire timeline of jazz yet leaving so much unfinished.
