Last Date is a live recording by jazz musician Eric Dolphy. The concert, recorded on June 2, 1964[3] in Hilversum, Holland, was just 27 days before Dolphy's death from diabetic shock.

Despite the title, this concert was neither Dolphy's "last date" nor his latest surviving recorded performance – another takes were recorded for ORTF radio program at Paris 9 days later.
