1 - DOLPHY, ERIC - COMPLETE UPPSALA CONCERT 1 - (LP) 
NAKED LUNCH


Recorded Live in Sweden in September 1961 the Uppsala Concert is an important document from Dolphy's first Swedish tour as leader of an obscure but talented local quartet featuring Rony Johansson - piano; Kurt Lindgren - bass and Rune Carlsson - drums.

3 - DOLPHY, ERIC - THE LAST DATE - (DVD) 
BLOWPIPE


Musical documentary about the versatile alto saxophone and bass clarinet player, flautist and composer Eric Dolphy. Dolphy was born in Los Angeles in 1928 and died in Berlin in 1964. His music is still very much alive. The documentary is a combination of an Eric Dolphy biography, and a reconstruction of his last tour. During his last tour, a few weeks before his death, Dolphy had sessions with the trio Mischa Mengelberg, Jacques Schols and Han Bennink. They finished their tour with a radio session resulting in Dolphys last album Last Date, often considered to be his best recording. The documentary focuses on the last radio recording, made in Hilversum, and is inspired by the six different tracks of the Last Date record. The prologue and epilogue are associated with aspects of Dolphys personality and music. He was not a run of the mill jazz musician. Dolphy had an amiable character. He would neither drink nor smoke. He was not into drugs and fatally unaware of the fact that he suffered from diabetes. A few weeks after his appearance in Holland he suddenly died in Berlin, just before a planned tour.Apart from the documentary the Last Date recording is on the DVD. Moreover some pictures of Dolphy at work are included, and photos shot by Ton van Wageningen during Dolphys Hilversum session. A discography is included, as well as an interview with filmmaker Hans Hylkema about his inspiration and motive to make this documentary. director: Hans Hylkema / camera: Deen van der Zaken / sound: Piotr van Dijk, Lucas Boeke / editor: Ot Louw /animation: Gerrit van Dijkproduction: Marian Brouwer / The Netherlands, 1991 Musicians The Last Date: Eric Dolphy - flute, bass clarinet, altsax / Misha Mengelberg - piano / Han Bennink - drums / Jacques Schols - basDVD9 / all-regions / 4:3 / color & black and white / Dolby 2.0 / 92 min. + extrasDutch / English spoken and/or subtitled /extras: interview / photogallery/ poem by Remco Campert / discography
