Eric Dolphy Out To Lunch Limited 180gram Vinyl LP

Overview:

In February 1964, Eric Dolphy assembled a formidable quintet of modern jazz visionaries with Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, Bobby Hutcherson on vibraphone, Richard Davis on bass, and Tony Williams on drums, and headed into Rudy Van Gelder’s studio to record what would stand as his masterwork: Out to Lunch!

A genius artist of startling originality, Dolphy managed to possess the revolutionary spirit of the avant-garde while keeping a foot firmly planted in the feeling of swing, a rare feat that the five original pieces here perfectly captured from the offbeat swagger of the opening Monk tribute “Hat and Beard” to the careening closer “Straight Up and Down.”

This Blue Note Classic Vinyl Edition is all-analog, mastered by Kevin Gray from the original master tapes, and pressed on 180g vinyl at Optimal.

Featured Tracks:

1. Hat And Beard (Side A)

2. Something Sweet, Something Tender (Side A)

3. Gazzelloni (Side A)

4. Out To Lunch (Side B)

5. Straight Up And Down (Side B)
