In stock


*In process of stocking* On Ezz-thetics: Eric Dolphy alto saxophone, bass clarinet, Don Ellis trumpet, David Baker trombone, George Russell piano, Steve Swallow double bass & Joe Hunt drums. On The Stratus Seekers: Paul Plummer tenor saxophone , John Peirce alto saxophone, Don Ellis trumpet, David Baker trombone, George Russell piano,  Steve Swallow double bass & Joe Hunt drums. The six albums that George Russell recorded in just two years – starting with Sextet at the Five Spot in September 1960 and concluding with The Outer View in August 1962 – are pathbreaking documents that elaborated a radically restructured bridge between the Birth of the Cool and the outermost reaches of the mid-‘60s avant-garde, and set fascinating precedents for subsequent composers who sought to redesign the formal parameters of jazz composition, from Andrew Hill to Henry Threadgill. Of these six, Ezz-thetics and The Stratus Seekers are the most cohesive, most adventurous, and most rewarding.' - Art Lange
