- Out To Lunch by Eric Dolphy
10/10 Jack 18th July 2016
Throughout most of his career, Dolphy had one foot in the avant-garde and one foot in the bop tradition. In this album, his unique abilities really shine, both as a composer and as a soloist. Dolphy was bridging the supposed gap between the 'New Thing' players and the boppers long before people like Arthur Blythe, or Anthony Braxton started playing standards again. Dolphy was always master of his musical situation, even as a sideman. and if you only get one Dolphy album, this is the one to get. It shows where jazz might have gone, had he not died so young.
