Grachan Moncur III's Evolution is a Blue Note essential. Recorded in 1963, the album was the first by the trombonist and released on the Blue Note label. Moncur is joined by Lee Morgan, Jackie McLean, Bobby Hutcherson, Bob Cranshaw, and Anthony Williams.
Newly remastered for vinyl as part of an overall Blue Note 75th anniversary vinyl reissue campaign spearheaded by current Blue Note Records President, Don Was.
"With such an inventive debut, it's a shame Moncur didn't record more as a leader, which makes Evolution an even more important item for fans of Blue Note's avant-garde to track down." -Steve Huey, allmusic.com
