The Jazz Record Art Collective is proud to present the Damon Short Sextet performing Grachan Moncurs "Evolution" from 1963.
"The debut album of Grachan Moncur III, “Evolution” was recorded on November 21, 1963, the day before President Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas. It bears many similarities to Moncur’s work as a sideman with Jackie McClean on the 1963 releases “One Step Beyond” and “Destination… Out!” including lineup with the sole differences being the addition of trumpeter Lee Morgan and Bob Cranshaw on bass.
No doubt influenced by the work of Ornette Coleman during this time, Moncur is trying to use modal harmony as a bridge from the bebop sphere into the free jazz and avant garde movement. Truly a star-studded group (Bobby Hutcherson on Vibes, Tony Williams on drums, Bob Cranshaw, Lee Morgan, Jackie McClean, and Moncur on trombone), it is no wonder that the album is one of the landmark recordings in a transitional time in jazz and the United States." ~ Gil Bolster
