On this edition I pay tribute to saxophonist, clarinetist and flutist Eric Dolphy who tragically died in Berlin on the 29th of June 1964 at the young age of 36, his influence still immensely felt in Jazz today. You can hear some of his most important recordings, music recorded in the final days of his life and his influence on a new generation of progressive musicians.
TALES FROM THE FAR SIDE is live on air on CRC102.9fm and on www.crcfm.ie every Thursday 8-9 pm with a repeat on Saturday 9-10 pm. And there is a podcast of the show available on the web site all through the week. The show has established itself over the years with a small but devoted listenership (even beyond Jazz-fans) and since the introduction on internet the listenership extended nationally and internationally.
