This overlooked BLUE NOTE album was recorded in New Jersey on August 5, 1964 and features emotional alto playing from Jackie McLean(1932-2006) with the underrated Charles Tolliver(trumpet) and a superb rhythm section of Herbie Hancock(piano); Cecil McBee(bass) & Roy Haynes(drums).
The six memorable tracks include three originals each from McLean & Tolliver.
Highlights include Tolliver's freeish 'Cancellation' & the beautiful ballad 'Truth' plus McLean's soulful 'Das' Dat' and the declamatory title-track.
This CONNOISSEUR SERIES reissue(2006) of 'It's Time' sounds fresh over 50 years later and should appeal to anyone who appreciates passionate and adventurous modern jazz.

HASH(0x98695c78) out of 5 stars "It's Time" This Came Out in the U.S. 26 Jun. 2006
By Michael Brad Richman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Neglected for years in Blue Note's various reissue series, Jackie McLean's brilliant Blue Note albums from 1964-66 are finally being released on CD domestically. For the longest time, only the amazing quartet album "Right Now" was available in the States (see my review), but within the last couple of years, five of the alto saxophonist's six sessions from this period have made it to disc. I suppose this is nothing new for these albums by Jackie Mack. Only "It's Time," "Action" and "Right Now" were originally released at the time of their recording in the 60s, and it wasn't until the late 70s that the phenomenal dates that comprised "Jackknife," "Consequence" and "High Frequency" (still MIA) were even put to vinyl.

Now with this Connoisseur reissue, it's time for many jazz fans to get a first listen of Jackie's first 1964 session. A sensational, impassioned quintet session, "It's Time" is as good as anything recorded for Blue Note from that watershed year (think "Speak No Evil," "Out To Lunch," "Point of Departure," "Inner Urge"). McLean, the man who can take credit for bringing Tony Williams and Bobby Hutcherson to the Blue Note fold, has assembled another stellar group, with the young Charles Tolliver on trumpet, Herbie Hancock on piano, Cecil McBee on bass and Roy Haynes on drums. The material on this session is experimental, but grounded firmly in the Blue Note tradition, similar to Andrew Hill's sessions or Hancock's "Empyrean Isles." This is classic stuff, and finally you don't have to plunk down big bucks for the import title.

HASH(0x98c75270) out of 5 stars "It's Time" For This To Get Released Domestically 19 Sept. 2000
By Michael Brad Richman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
With all the wonderful Blue Note reissues of the last few years, it's a shame that Jackie McLean's brilliant albums from 1964-66 have not been released on CD domestically. The amazing quartet album "Right Now" is the only disc ever released in the States. Unfortunately, this is nothing new for these albums by Jackie Mack. Only "It's Time," "Action" and "Right Now" were originally released at the time of their recording in the 60s, and it wasn't until the late 70s that the phenomenal dates that comprised "Jackknife," "Consequence" and "High Frequency" were put to vinyl. Thankfully, the Mosaic Company released all six of these albums in a limited edition box set a few years back, but now that too is out of print.
Until wiser heads prevail at EMI, you can at least get a glimpse at these marvelous recordings with the import CD version of Jackie's first 1964 session, "It's Time." A sensational, impassioned quintet session, "It's Time" is as good as anything recorded for Blue Note from that watershed year of 1964 (think "Speak No Evil," "Out To Lunch," "Point of Departure," "Inner Urge"). McLean, the man who can take credit for bringing Tony Williams and Bobby Hutcherson to the Blue Note fold, has assembled another stellar group, including the young Charles Tolliver on trumpet, Herbie Hancock on piano, Cecil McBee on bass and Roy Haynes on drums. The material on this session is experimental, but grounded firmly in the Blue Note tradition, similar to Andrew Hill's sessions or Hancock's "Empyrean Isles." I'll be shocked if this doesn't get released in the U.S. through the RVG or Connoisseur series, particularly with the Mosaic set now being sold out. (Similar things have happened when other Mosaics have sold out -- when the Art Blakey and Larry Young sets went out of print, we began to see individual titles made available on Blue Note.) But then again we've never seen Sam Rivers' titles made available. This is classic stuff, and plunking down big bucks for the import will be a worthwhile investment.

HASH(0x98c37714) out of 5 stars jazz discovery 3 May 2012
By Donald E. Gilliland - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I had been trying to stretch out and expand my musical horizons, especially in the jazz vein, so I ordered this CD. I hadn't heard any Jackie McLean albums before I decided on this one, but I sure picked a winner. This is fantasic music with that familiar Blue Note style. McLean's sax style is very fluid, and of course it doesn't hurt to have Herbie Hancock doing some keyboard magic on these tracks. But as another reviewer noted, it's trumpet player Charles Tolliver who really stands out on this album. Some great sounds here. I'm not enough of a jazz expert to tell you WHAT exact style or sub-genre of jazz that these guys are playing (still trying to come to terms with terms like "Post-Bop"), but the swing and the groove are very pleasing to my ears. I liked this so much, that I've gone and bought two other albums by Jackie McLean. I think he's one of the better and more underrated Blue Note musicians from the 60s.

Note that most of the 64-66 Jackie McLean albums have now been re-released (however, not this one) as well as some of the Sam Rivers. All reasonably priced and worth having. Also, see excellent Grachan Moncur 3-CD box at Mosaic for Jackie's great contribution to those seminal recordings.
