Abstract:

Eric Dolphy was an American jazz artist, a virtuoso alto saxophonist, bass clarinetist and flautist. His career as a major jazz figure lasted, at the most, six years but his performances, his personal presence and dedication to his art drew respect from his most exalted contemporaries and find resonance among audiences and influence among players today. This document takes a detailed look at Dolphy's major unaccompanied alto saxophone perfomances--first by full, detailed transcription and second by identifying and describing in text aspects of structure and technique evident in the performances. The descriptions lead to thoughts on the nature of improvisation, Dolphy's relationships to his contemporaries, his improvising language and his extension of saxophone technique.
