Dolphy recorded quite a bit during , including three albums cut at the Five Spot while with trumpeter Booker Little, Free Jazz with Ornette Coleman, sessions with Max Roach, and some European dates.
Late in Dolphy was part of the John Coltrane Quintet; their engagement at the Village Vanguard caused conservative critics to try to smear them as playing "anti-jazz" due to the lengthy and very free solos.
After he chose to stay in Europe, Dolphy had a few gigs but then died suddenly from a diabetic coma at the age of 36, a major loss. Booker Little. Moods in Free Time. Hazy Hues. Reincarnation of a Love Bird Charles Mingus.

Cash Box Buyer's Supplement. The Cash Box Publishing Co. Retrieved 21 June Booker Little. Years indicated are for the recording s , not first release. Before a concert in Oslo , he informed Mingus that he planned to stay in Europe after their tour was finished, partly because he had become disillusioned with the United States' reception to musicians who were trying something new.
Mingus then named the blues they had been performing "So Long Eric". After leaving Mingus, he performed and recorded a few sides with various European bands, and American musicians living in Paris, such as Donald Byrd and Nathan Davis. Last Date , originally a radio broadcast of a concert in Hilversum in the Netherlands, features Misha Mengelberg and Han Bennink , although it was not Dolphy's last public performance.
Dolphy was also preparing to join Albert Ayler for a recording and spoke of his strong desire to play with Cecil Taylor. He also planned to form a band with Woody Shaw and Billy Higgins , and was writing a string quartet entitled "Love Suite". Eric Dolphy died accidentally in Berlin on June 29, Certain details of his death are still disputed, but it is accepted that he died of a coma brought on by an undiagnosed diabetic condition. The liner notes to the Complete Prestige Recordings box set say that Dolphy "collapsed in his hotel room in Berlin and when brought to the hospital he was diagnosed as being in a diabetic coma.
After being administered a shot of insulin he lapsed into insulin shock and died". A later documentary and liner note dispute this, saying Dolphy collapsed on stage in Berlin and was brought to a hospital. The attending hospital physicians had no idea that Dolphy was a diabetic and decided on a stereotypical view of jazz musicians related to substance abuse , that he had overdosed on drugs.
He was left in a hospital bed for the drugs to run their course. Ted Curson remembers, "That really broke me up. When Eric got sick on that date [in Berlin], and him being black and a jazz musician, they thought he was a junkie. Eric didn't use any drugs. He was a diabetic — all they had to do was take a blood test and they would have found that out. So he died for nothing. They gave him some detox stuff and he died, and nobody ever went into that club in Berlin again.
That was the end of that club".Eric Dolphy Eric Dolphy records, LPs and CDs.
