Left Alone & Eric Dolphy

From Far Cry (1960).

Eric Dolphy (flute), Jaki Byard (piano), Ron Carter (bass), Roy Haynes (drums). Dolphy is mainly known for his insanely-ahead-of-his-time saxophone and bass clarinet playing, but I think nobody can touch him on flute. The solo from 2:00 is arguably the best jazz flute solo ever.
