This is one of the great Jackie McLean albums. After nearly a decade away from recording, the veteran altoist teamed up with his son, René McLean (who triples on tenor, soprano, and flute), pianist Hotep Idris Galeta, bassist Nat Reeves, and drummer Carl Allen for a very passionate and high-powered live set. Whether it be originals by René (including "J. Mac's Dynasty") or Galeta, a very intense version of "A House Is Not a Home," or Jackie's "Bird Lives," this is dynamic and consistently exciting music. The go-for-broke solos (which transcend any easy categories) and Jackie's unique sharp tone make this an essential CD, one of the top recordings to be released in 1990.

Attraverso i case studies di quattro musicisti geniali ma spesso avversati dai contemporanei perché considerati troppo "difficili" o "sperimentali" - i pianisti Cecil Taylor e Herbie Nichols, i sassofonisti Ornette Coleman e Jackie McLean - Spellman offre un resoconto aspro e disincantato del conflitto tra le esigenze dell'entertainment e quelle dell'integrità artistica, tra le asfissie del mercato discografico e gli orizzonti potenzialmente infiniti della ricerca musicale. Ciò che emerge da queste pagine, nel vivido racconto in prima persona dei protagonisti, è una vicenda di battaglie quotidiane per la sopravvivenza, fra difficoltà economiche, droghe e discriminazioni razziali; ma anche una storia di speranza e solidarietà, di inaspettati riscatti e rari, luminosi successi…

Among the many saxophonists who have been influenced by the Hall of Fame composer, arranger, educator and alto master Jackie McLean, three stand out: alto sax prodigy Christopher Hollyday, Dr. Steve Lehman, and now composer, arranger, alto/tenor saxist, and Canadian jazz scene impresario Cory Weeds. All three of these musicians were able to develop their own styles. This recording harkens back not only to McLean’s days at Blue Note records, but to countless past and present saxophone-organ-guitar-drum combos that have a special place in the hearts of many jazz fans. This is an enjoyable blowing session of the first water that McLean himself might have delighted in as this potent quartet gives their own interpretation of some of his compositions. Joining Weeds in this tribute are master guitarist Peter Bernstein, first-rate organist Mike LeDonne, and drum master Joe Farnsworth. Three songs of this tribute are from the McLean “Consequence” session with Lee Morgan.

AVID Jazz here presents four classic Jackie McLean albums including original LP liner notes on a finely re-mastered and low priced double CD. All four albums have been digitally re-mastered for probably the finest ever sound quality! Fat Jazz / Jackie's Bag / New Soil / Swing Swang. I love being surprised by a newly discovered voice. It's like suddenly stumbling across new country: so much to explore, a Place To Be as Hiromi once so felicitously titled one of her projects. Jackie McLean affords the listener many pleasures.First, his balance of feeling and sensibility. Jackie is very much the Romantic, probing, adventurous, dynamic. Second, his gift for improvisation is very painterly. The pictures he creates in the listeners mind are fresh and repay repeated focused listening. Thirdly, his sense of drive and swing is flawless-the man can pivot from figure to the next with a lithe athletic grace. Fourth, Jackies improvisations are like the best modern poetry, full of the sound of surprise.

Saxman Jackie McLean's explorations of free jazz and the avant-garde were still a couple of years away when he cut this Blue Note album in 1960, but that doesn't mean CAPUCHIN SWING is a by-the-numbers affair by any means. Though its name isn't generally invoked when the tally of hard bop's greatest albums is made, it stands up alongside anything Freddie Hubbard, Hank Mobley, et al were doing at the time. With trumpeter Blue Mitchell proving to be a perfectly matched sparring partner, McLean pushes bop harmonies and structures nearly to the breaking point with his intense improvisations on a batch of original compositions with a couple of outside tunes thrown in. Throughout, McLean stirs the sonic pot in such a fiery fashion, you can just tell something's cooking that he hasn't quite served up yet.
