"Although there is very little footage of Eric Dolphy (ED) in this informative documentry,the film still manages to capture the essence of this beautiful brother. It seems that ED knew what he wanted to do at a early age. His level of commitment is truely endearing, as this is conveyed through interviews (early in the film) with relatives, music instructors, and acquaintences. ED could have given up his pursuits of a musical quest because as teenage he had applied to play with the L.A.Symphony, but was turned down do his "color". Fortunately for us ED persevere, and continued pursuits musical creativety. This a beautiful film about a beautiful individual. Truely one of the great jazz gaints, whose career was cut to short in part by a miss diagnosis hypoglycemia."
