When You Coming Home Eric?

Charles Mingus Sextet

Stockholm, 1964

Eric Dolphy’s final performance was with the “Charles Mingus Sextet” in Stockholm, Sweden in 1964.

In one of his final performances in April 1964, Eric Dolphy engages in a relaxed rehearsal set.

Upon learning of Dolphy’s plan to remain in Europe with his fiancée after their tour had finished, Mingus asked him, “How long are you going to stay?”—a question to which the saxophonist had no answer.
