This CD contains Eric Dolphy’s complete original LP Outward Bound (Prestige/New Jazz 8236). It marks his first album as a leader, and features him in a quintet format with Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, Jaki Byard on piano, George Tucker on bass and Roy Haynes on drums. It was also the first of various collaborations between Dolphy and Hubbard. The only two alternate takes from the session, as well as an extended reading of the bluesy “R&R” recorded that same year (and on which he shares center stage with Roy Eldridge and Charles Mingus) have been added as a bonus.
