Eric Dolphy / Out To Lunch (1964) Out To Lunch stands as Eric Dolphy's magnum opus, an absolute pinnacle of avant-garde jazz in any form or era.  The whole ensemble - trumpeter Freddie Hubbard, vibist Bobby Hutcherson, bassist Richard Davis, and drummer Tony Williams - take full advantage of the freedom Dolphy offers with his odd time signatures, wide-interval leaps, and flirtations with atonality. Monsieur EZ~BEAT! rates 10 of 10.
