Unity is an album by jazz organist Larry Young, released on the Blue Note label. While not free jazz, the album features innovative experimentation. The title was chosen by Young because "although everybody on the date was very much an individualist, they were all in the same frame of mood. It was evident from the start that everything was fitting together. The album was Young's second for Blue Note, following on from Into Somethin'.

On Unity, jazz organist Larry Young began to display some of the angular drive that made him a natural for the jazz-rock explosion to come barely four years later. While about as far from the groove jazz of Jimmy Smith as you could get, Young hadn't made the complete leap into freeform jazz-rock either. Here he finds himself in very distinguished company: drummer Elvin Jones, trumpeter Woody Shaw, and saxman Joe Henderson

If you like 70s progressive rock bands like Yes and Emerson, Lake and Palmer, this may very well be the jazz album for you, as Young's innovative organ soloing here definitely broke new ground and influenced the Hammond sound later brought into the mainstream by those acts and others like them. That's not to say that this is in any way a jazz-rock fusion album, as the set remains firmly grounded in Hard Bop, even if it at times ventures off into more experimental realms, but what Young was doing here was nonetheless paving the way for much of the music that would come in the following decade in both jazz and rock.

A rare, perfect jazz album, from the iconic cover design by Reid Miles (the rare BN album not feature any of the players pictures on the cover) to the short, but flawless album within. Larry Young changed the game, forcing critics to take jazz organ seriously with his modal, wandering vamps, massively influenced by Coltrane; Joe Henderson & Woody Shaw a perfect front line combo, as good a 1-2 punch as there was outside of Miles/Anyone back then. And anchoring the whole affair is who else? Arguably the greatest drummer of all time; Elvin Jones. This album is adventurous, exciting, borderline dangerous. Non-stop thumping yet beautiful. One of the greatest sides in the Blue Note catalog. A must-own record whether you're starting a jazz collection from scratch or rounding one out. The Music Matters Vinyl Reissue is worth every penny - a treasure.
