6. Eric Dolphy - Out to Lunch! (1964)

12dolphyeouttolunchRecorded just a few months before his death at the age of 36, this album was his first and only recording for Blue Note as lead. In avant-garde jazz terms it stands as one of his very best examples of the style and as him as a musician. Don't get me wrong - Dolphy did have his critics and he was blamed for the death of swing, but he did surround himself with class, including Freddie Hubbard, Bobby Hutcherson, Richard Davis and Tony Williams, who collectively produced an outstanding album.
