In February 1964, Eric Dolphy assembled a formidable quintet of modern jazz visionaries with Freddie Hubbard, Bobby Hutcherson, Richard Davis, and Tony Williams, 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.
