Destination… Out! is an album by American saxophonist Jackie McLean recorded in 1963 and released on the Blue Note label.
“Like Eric Dolphy before him, Jackie McLean sought to create a kind of vanguard “chamber jazz” that still had the blues feel and – occasionally – the groove of hard bop, though with rounded, moodier edges. Destination Out! was the album on which he found it. … If there was a perfect Blue Note session after John Coltrane’s Blue Train, this was it. … Of all of McLean’s Blue Note dates, so many of which are classic jazz recordings, Destination Out! stands as the one that reveals the true soulfulness and complexity of his writing, arranging, and “singing” voice.” – Thom Jurek/AllMusic.
