A master improviser on the alto sax, flute, and bass clarinet, Eric Dolphy was a leader of the jazz avant-garde. In addition to albums such as Out There, Dolphy set a high standard for solo performance, notably in his several unaccompanied recordings on saxophone, as well as in his rendition of Billie Holiday's God Bless the Child, performed on bass clarinet during a European tour. A Los Angeles native, he was posthumously inducted into the Down Beat magazine Hall of Fame in 1964.
