Grachan Moncur III was (along with Roswell Rudd) the premier trombonist in the American 1960's jazz avant-garde. Moncur's style was of the times--gruff, mercurial, and urgent. Yet 1964's EVOLUTION is one of those Blue Note albums where hard bop and the avant scene overlap. The lineup is a who's-who of the label's best: drummer Tony Williams, altoist Jackie McLean, and vibraphonist Bobby Hutcherson, performers mostly known for straight-ahead styles but who also dipped into freer waters when called upon. EVOLUTION is all original Moncur compositions, which inspires these players to really push the envelope (especially McLean who always shone with the trombonist). Moncur's themes are moody, angst-ridden, and somewhat ominous, but they're also thoroughly absorbing and stimulating. For those liking the edgier side of Blue Note's catalog, EVOLUTION is essential.
