Eric Dolphy was a virtuoso multi-instrumentalist whose fertile imagination and boundless energy made him a uniquely dynamic and arresting performer and composer. merging elements of bebop, the classical avant-garde, bird song and free jazz, Dolphy’s music has had its share of critics as well as ardent fans.

Multi-instrumentalist Paul Cutlan’s Far Cry  explores this unprecedented music from albums such as Far Cry, Out to Lunchand Fire Waltz. Wielding an array of large and small wind instruments, Cutlan is joined by thedynamic team of Peter Farrar alto saxophone, Luke Sweeting piano, Abel Cross bass and James Waples drums for a memorable night of very in-the-moment musicianship.

“Eric Dolphy polarised people: to those with the ears to hear he was a revolutionary genius, while to others he was a charlatan, excessively fond of dissonance. He could write melodies as exultant as a leap in the air and first lit up the world 60 years ago, his radical conception already fully formed. This was a complete reimagining of what an alto saxophone, a bass clarinet or a flute could be; of what a solo could be; of what jazz could be. Paul Cutlan assembled musicians to play Dolphy’s compositions who would not denude them of their mystery or reduce their magic to pedestrianism. … arched, edgy and untamed”. – John Shand, Sydney Morning Herald
