Out to Lunch! was Eric Dolphy’s only recording for Blue Note Records as a leader and today is considered one of the premiere albums in the label’s history as well as one of the top avant garde jazz albums of the 1960s. Featuring five Dolphy originals – including the Thelonious Monk tribute “Hat and Beard,” Out to Lunch! includes the artistry of Dolphy on alto sax, flute and bass clarinet along with Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, Bobby Hutcherson on vibes, Richard Davis on bass and Anthony Williams on drums. Out to Lunch was newly-remastered for vinyl by Alan Yoshida at Dunning-Kruger in Los Angeles as part of an overall Blue Note 75th anniversary vinyl reissue campaign spearheaded by current Blue Note Records President, Don Was.
