Eric Dolphy Out There on 200g LP
Prestige Stereo Reissue Series from Analogue Productions / Cut from the Original Analog Master Tapes by Kevin Gray & Pressed on 200g Vinyl at Quality Record Pressings
In 1960, the free jazz being trailblazed by such jazz luminaries as Ornette Coleman, Cecil Taylor and Horace Tapscott was being widely disparaged by both musicians and critics alike. To the visionary Eric Dolphy
, however, it was simply a logical extension of the jazz tradition. Released in the middle of that musical storm and distinctly unique in and of itself, Out There
, was recorded with a pianoless quartet that repurposed Ron Carter’s
cello as the other melody instrument while Dolphy worked from chord patterns developed within structures that depart from ordinary 32-bar jazz and popular song forms. Dolphy’s speech-like improvisations and Carter’s bowed or plucked cello solos glide over the deft accompaniments of bassist George Duvivier
and drummer Roy Haynes
, all in direct service of Dolphy's unprecedented tonal explorations.
