1)McLEAN'S SCENE: 1956 & 1957. The young saxophonist is still developing from the inevitable Parker comparisons. With Mal Waldron(p), Red Garland(p), Bill Hardman(t), Art Taylor(d) and Paul Garland(b). Cleveland's Hardman rattles chorus after chorus in 'Gone with The Wind'. McLean is sublime on 'Our Love Is Here To Stay', 'Mean To Me', 'Old Folks' and 'Chasin' The Bird' that may reflect later quotations from them both.
2)NEW SOIL: May,1959. Given ample rehearsal time by producer Alfred Lion, McLean emerged from self-confessed 'difficult times'. His self-penned opener 'Hip Strut' is blues. His exchanges of ideas with Charlie Byrd,(g),flow. 'Minor Apprehension' is taken at a rapid tempo. Hints of his future ideas come through (Ornette Coleman comes to mind). Chambers(b), Davis Jr (p) and Pete La Roca(d) with a stunning solo stand out.
3)SWING,SWANG,SWINGIN': Oct 1959. Surprisingly, Jackie sticks to standards all played mid-tempo. Bishop(p), Garrison(b), Art Taylor accompany. Plenty of swing. 'What's New' is almost a nod to Parker. 'Stablemates' stretches but '116th And Lennox' is more challenging.
4)CAPUCHIN SWING: April 1960. Mitchell(t), Bishop(p),Chambers(b),Art Taylor(d) are hardened boppers. This followed release (3). McLean's varied repertoire (three compositions and two from Bishop) lead to a driving set with extended solos from the saxophonist. Mitchell is a perfect counterfoil. 'Francisco', 'Conditional Blue' (featuring Chambers) and 'On The Lion' are highlights.
5)JACKIE'S BAG: Jan. 59 & Sept. 1960.Read more ›
