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.

The Toshiba EMI import release of Eric Dolphy's last US studio date Out to Lunch is, inexplicably, folded into mono. It was originally recorded and mixed in stereo: Left - Center - Right (horns left, bass center, drums right). The Amazon.com sound samples misrepresent the Toshiba EMI CD since they are in stereo, ripped from the domestic RVG Series issue.
I cannot recommend this import. It suffers from the same excessive compression found on most of the RVG series reissues. I hope that Joe Harley and Alan Toshida at Audio Wave will consider remastering "Out to Lunch" as part of their exemplary Blue Note XRCD series.
If you're a bit like me and like to search out cool new sounds, I highly recommend giving this disc a spin. I think you will be delighted!
Apparently most if not all of Eric Dolphy's CDs are still in print, so I hope to enjoy more of this great music.
Enjoy & God bless!
