Destination Out! (Original US Stereo RVG)
Warning: Last items in stock!
As the title suggests, there is little about this disc that would constitute a safe approach to Jazz. But then, alto man Jackie McLean never was one to take the easy path. The adventurousness of this set from 1963 hints of the changing scene at the time and McLean makes a bold statement here. Included in the adventure are the daring Grachan Moncur III, the equally confident Bobby Hutcherson, and the enterprising Roy Haynes. In all, this album offers an interesting snapshot of the development of jazz during the early 1960s, where bebop and blues begin to give ground to something altogether different: a ‘new thing’, or new ‘avant-garde’.
FIRST US STEREO PRESSING from 1964, including original Blue Note inner sleeve. "VAN GELDER" is stamped and a symbol of an ear is inscribed into the run out groove of both sides.
Absolutely top notch condition: both cover & vinyl are strong Near Mint.
Recorded at Van Gelder Studio, New Jersey, September 20, 1963.
