John Coltrane on Eric Dolphy “Whatever I’d say would be an understatement. I can only say my life was made much better by knowing him. He was one of the greatest people I’ve ever known, as a man, a friend, and a musician.”
Pictured above is John Coltrane playing the flute. Eric Dolphy’s mother gave Coltrane his instruments shortly after Dolphy died. Coltrane later on played the flute and bass clarinet in honor of Dolphy. You can hear Coltrane playing the bass clarinet on his Live in Japan album.
