Release Date:09/08/2017;Notes:Doxy present a reissue of George Russell Sextet's Ezz-thetics, originally released in 1961. The sextet features George Russell, Dave Baker, Don Ellis, Eric Dolphy, Steve Swallow, and Joe Hunt. Includes bonus track. Edition of 300 (numbered). "With a group of musicians assembled for the occasion, pianist/composer/theorist George Russell goes into Riverside's studios in 1960 to record Ezz-thetics. Nowadays frequently found on 'greatest jazz albums' lists, this fantastic record is difficult to categorize and that's for the best. Exacerbated be-bop, modal concepts, hard bop and even hints at burgeoning free-jazz give this opus a unique and enchanting sound. Success always has many fathers. On one hand the compositions are remarkable, the four from Russell unfold with a surprising phrasing that avoids well-trodden paths. Miles Davis 'Nardis' is beautifully rearranged and Dave Baker's 'Honesty' adds a bluesy touch that doesn't hurt the overall cohesion. On the other hand you've got the soloists. Baker isn't afraid to play fast and precise on his trombone, Don Ellis displays his effects but above all Eric Dolphy who already steals the show with his alto solo on the first track. And if all that wasn't enough the album closes on one of the best version of Monk's classic 'Round Midnight' where Dolphy just dominates and proves his style also works on ballads." -AllMusic;Track List:1.
