Into The Hot

Very smart clean vinyl housed in a nice crisp gloss cover ..

Into the Hot is an album released under the auspices of Gil Evans featuring a large ensemble under the direction of John Carisi and the Cecil Taylor Unit.[1] The album was released on the Impulse! label in 1961.

Composer/trumpeter John Carisi's three tracks are performed by an orchestra drawn from the top ranks of New York jazz and studio musicians and features solos by Phil Woods.

Cecil Taylor's contribution consists of two tracks by Taylor and a quintet with Archie Shepp, Jimmy Lyons, Henry Grimes and Sunny Murray. The group expanded to a septet with the addition of Ted Curson and Roswell Rudd on a third track.

(The Cecil Taylor recordings from this album were also released on Mixed in 1998 along with tracks by Roswell Rudd's sextet.)[2]
