"Dave Lee Jr was born in New Orleans and the deep hypnotic and experimental jazz music featured on Evolution is as rooted in New Orleans rhythmically as it is in the spiritual and metaphysical musical ideas of John Coltrane, Sun Ra and other futurist soul-searchers. Originally released in New York in 1974, the album Evolution was self-funded and released as a private-pressing and as holy grail record rarities in the world go, this album ranks high with only around 400 copies ever pressed. Growing up in New Orleans, during the 1960s Lee became a part of the city's thriving rhythm and blues scene playing sessions with everyone from Eddie Bo to Willie Tee, before moving to New York in the 1970s as part of Roy Ayer's group and also working with Lonnie Liston Smith, Harold Alexander, Leon Thomas and many other talented artists as a session drummer, recording for radical independent labels such as Flying Dutchman, Strata-East and India Navigation. Complete with full sleevenotes and text. Comes in Soul Jazz limited edition special box edition and slipcase CD."
