  • Credits

    Personnel includes: Eric Dolphy (alto saxophone, flute, bass clarinet); Misja Mengelberg (piano); Jacques Shols (bass); Han Bennink (drums).
    Recorded in Hilversum, Holland on June 2, 1964.
    Allegedly Eric Dolphy's final recorded performance, this session in Hilversum, Holland, teams the masterful bass clarinetist, flutist, and alto saxophonist with a Dutch trio of performers. In pianist Misha Mengelberg, bassist Jacques Schols, and drummer Han Bennink, Dolphy was firmly entwined with a group who understood his off-kilter, pretzel logic concept in shaping melodies and harmonies. Three Dolphy originals, the one from Monk, one from Mengelberg, and a standard are played so convincingly and with the utmost courage that they serve as a final statement of how Dolphy ultimately conceived of jazz itself. LAST DATE is one of those legendary albums whose reputation grows with every passing year. It also marks the passing of one era and the beginning of what has become a most potent and enduring legacy of European creative improvised tradition, started by Mengelberg and Bennink at this mid-'60s juncture.
