Cecil McBee – Flying Out (1982)

Flying Out is the second track on the B-side on the album Flying Out by the jazz bassplayer Cecil McBee, released in 1982 on the label India Navigation.

This is a rather unusual chamber jazz album that finds bassist Cecil McBee interacting with violinist John Blake, cellist David Eyges, cornetist Olu Dara, and drummer Billy Hart. Variety is gained by McBee switching to piano on “Truth — A Path to Peace,” while “Into a Fantasy” is a classical-oriented string trio with violin, cello, and bass and “Blues on the Bottom” is a more conventional blues. The advanced music and the blending of the unusual colors works quite well. [source]
