Alan Saul’s Home Page : Devoted to the late Eric Dolphy. Discography, sound samples, and links to other resources.

@allmusic : He was a true original with his own distinctive styles on alto, flute, and bass clarinet. His music fell into the avant-garde category yet he did not discard chordal improvisation altogether.

@last.fm : Classical music played a large role in Dolphy’s early training and remained important to him. Dolphy performed and recorded Edgard Varese’s Density 21.5 for solo flute as well as other classical[ works, and participated heavily in third stream efforts
