Paul Horn for Columbia from 1962.
This features the wonderful modal piece "Abstraction"

In the early 1960's, Paul Horn was a swinging and advanced improviser whose music reflected an interest in third-stream music while remaining tied to the bop/cool tradition. With his regular quintet of the era (which also includes vibraphonist Emil Richards, pianist Paul Moer, bassist Victor Gaskin and drummer Milt Turner), Horn (on alto, flute and bass flute) performs five of his originals, a song by Moer, Dr. Seuss' "Just Because We're Kids" and "Lazy Afternoon." This out-of-print LP was one of Horn's finer jazz dates. ~ Scott Yanow, All Music Guide
