Found in the Shuffle: Eric Dolphy – Gazzelloni

Song: Gazzelloni
Artist: Eric Dolphy
Album: Out to Lunch

It is a testiment to both the Beastie Boys’ greatness and my stupidity (not to mention my short-term memory loss) that when this song began, I thought it was one of the Beastie’s instrumental tracks. Eric Dolphy was an incredible musician, and if you think flute is lame, just listen to what he does on this song.
