Product Description

Product Description

"As the title suggests, there is little about this disc that would constitute a safe approach to Jazz. But then, alto man Jackie McLean never was one to take the easy path. The adventurousness of this set from 1963 hints of the changing scene at the time and McLean makes a bold statement here. Included in the adventure are the daring Grachan Moncur III, the equally confident Bobby Hutcherson, and the enterprising Roy Haynes. In all, this makes for a wild ride that opens the door to a new world of possibilities.

This album showcases Jackie McLean moving in a slightly different direction to his previous blue note albums and it is a rewarding move. Due to a drugs bust JM had lost his NY city cabaret card so couldn't form a regular band, this meant that he often worked with up and coming players who often went on to other things, such as Tony Williams and Charles Tolliver.

For a brief period he formed a working relationship with a nucleous of Grachan Moncur III and Bobby Hutcherson that appear on blue note albums: Evolution, One step byeond and this album. On these records JM was incorporating some of the new ideas of John Coltrane and Ornette Coleman but was using them to re-invigorate his own style of playing rather than fully embracing them. Of the three albums this group of players recorded this is my favourite as it is closer to straight ahead Jazz and has the brilliant drumming of Roy Haynes.

The use of alto sax combined with trombone and vibes in a quintet gives a unique sound. There is lots of space that allows the music to breath with the vibes adding colourful touches rather than dominating the music as a piano can sometimes do when it emphasises the changes.

There are only 4 tracks on the album but this works well as each is unique and avoids the pitfalls of so many albums which are hindered by filler or alternative tracks. Grachan Moncur III's compositions (3 of the 4) are interesting - especially Love and hate a superb slow opening track that has a late night feel to it. Strongly recommended.

In 1963 Jackie McLean's alto playing was still rooted in hard bop orthodoxy but moving - as the title of this recording suggests - towards the freer aesthetic pioneered by Ornette Coleman. The result here is a conservative take on what a post-bop jazz might sound like. The four compositions are interesting, although for me the opener, 'Love and Hate', is the stand-out track - a minor ballad that sounds at times like a blues funeral march with a strong modal flavour. On the more up-tempo numbers the hard bop influences tend to dominate.

Like other experimental groups of the time, McLean's quintet ditches the piano. Hutcherson's vibes supply something of the missing comping, but the sparer, lighter sound of the vibes produces a clear, loose ensemble sound with lots of internal space.

Listeners who like this should investigate McLean's earlier 'One Step Beyond' and Moncur's later 'Evolution', both of which feature McLean, Moncur and Hutcherson and were recorded in the same year.

I have had this album about ten years being introduced to it "late in life". It was an "ear-opener" when I heard it. I was aware of McLean because of his association with Mingus, and Bobby Hutcherson, and, of course, Roy Haynes. The first surprise was Grachan Moncur III. The only successful modern trombonists that I knew were JJ Johnson, Bob Brookmeyer and Jimmy Knepper, and this man had quite a different facility with an instrument that I find awkward in the modern setting. Three of the tunes are Moncur compositions, the fourth by McLean. For 1963 this is pretty way out music, but I suppose there is quite a bit of Mingus in its heritage; some say Ornette Coleman. Whatever it is a unique sound.
The four tunes are much of an ilk. Quite jerky phrasing. However the five guys (Larry Ridley, bass, is the fourth) play as a unit and their individual styles complement each other admirably.
Despite being recorded in 1963 if I was told that itwas recorded last year (2013) I would not have been surprised. Fifty years on this remains ground breaking modern jazz.

The late, great alto saxophonist Jackie McLean(1931-2006) assembled a creative band for this groundbreaking quintet album recorded in New Jersey on September 20, 1963.
Grachan Moncur III is an adventurous and melodic trombonist/composer while Bobby Hutcherson was chosen for his "rainbows of colours" sound. The quintet is completed by bassist Larry Ridley and the great drummer Roy Haynes.
The four longish and exhilarating tracks include three Moncur compositions and one by Jackie McLean.
'Destination Out!' is an overlooked modern jazz classic which still sounds fresh and exciting over 50 years later. It makes an excellent companion to McLean's earlier 1963 BLUE NOTE album 'One Step Beyond' with 18-year old drummer Tony Williams instead of Roy Haynes.
