Concertgebouw, Amsterdam, Holland, Friday evening, April 10, 1964.
In April 1964 the Charles Mingus Sextet with Eric Dolphy began a three week European tour. Many performances by the Mingus Sextet in Europe have been preserved, mostly by local radio and TV stations. This material would prove invaluable given the fact that Dolphy, who had decided to leave Mingus (hence the title of the bassist’s composition “So Long, Eric”) and stay in Europe, died in Berlin from a diabetic coma on June 29, 1964, at the age of 36. The concert at the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam taped on April 10, is the first preserved set by the group during that European tour (the group had already been recorded twice in the United States, during a recently discovered March 18, 1964 set at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York, and at New York’s Town Hall on April 4).
