Eric Dolphy - Out To Lunch! download album

Out to Lunch! is a 1964 album by jazz t Eric Dolphy. His only recording for Blue Note as a leader, it was originally issued as BLP 4163 and BST 84163. Today it is generally considered one of the finest albums in the label's history, as well as one of the high points in 1960s avant-garde jazz and in Dolphy's discography. Tony Williams had turned 18 a few months before this recording, and is listed as "Anthony Williams" on the album cover.

Out to Lunch stands as Eric Dolphy's magnum opus, an absolute pinnacle of avant-garde jazz in any form or era. Its rhythmic complexity was perhaps unrivaled since Dave Brubeck's Time Out, and its five Dolphy originals - the jarring Monk tribute "Hat and Beard," the aptly titled "Something Sweet, Something Tender," the weirdly jaunty flute showcase "Gazzelloni," the militaristic title track, the drunken lurch of "Straight Up and Down" - were a perfect balance of structured frameworks, carefully calibrated timbres, and generous individual freed.

Out To Lunch! is an album by jazz t and composer Eric Dolphy.

After Eric Dolphy’s solo, Freddie starts his. As is throughout the album, Hubbard plays decidedly more traditionally. It’s still out there, and nowhere near hard bop, but it isn’t the squeaks and squawks of our friend Eric Dolphy, either. He gets some great little licks in this solo. Out To Lunch (12:09) This one starts with Tony playing a military drum part. Then Dolphy comes in on alto sax along with Freddie Hubbard to play the melody, and the rest of the band comes in here as well. The melody is wild and brief, and Dolphy quickly starts his solo, with the kind of accompaniment we’ve grown accustomed to from this rhythm section. Dolphy’s alto playing is as marvelous and distinctive as his bass clarinet playing, and he utilizes the full range of the instrument like no one I’ve ever heard.
