In February 1964, Eric Dolphy assembled a quintet of modern jazz visionaries with Freddie Hubbard - trumpet, Bobby Hutcherson - vibraphone, Richard Davis - bass, & Tony Williams - drums, & headed into Rudy Van Gelder's studio to record what would stand as his masterwork: Out To Lunch! Dolphy possesses the revolutionary spirit of the avant-garde while keeping a foot firmly planted in the feeling of swing, perfectly captured from the opening Monk tribute Hat And Beard to 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.
