By Glenn Cook HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 22 April 2012
Format: Audio CD
48 Tracks, 8 Lps (albums) spread over 4 CDs means this is a awonderful way to obtain these Public Domain Lps.

There is no track listing so I've done one.

This is not a review as such just some information.

The good news is that there is now a volume two feature 7 more of Jackies's classic albums.7 Classic Albums

Eight Classic Albums [Audio CD] Jackie Mclean by Jackie Mclean (2012) Audio CD

The CDs in this set do not tell you whats on the actual CDs.

For a decent set of reviews I suggest you head to Amazon USA and read the reviews there.

By ACB(swansea) TOP 100 REVIEWER on 9 May 2013
Format: Audio CD
Eight truly classic albums digitally remastered. Sound is excellent as is the price. They take Jackie McLean through his hard-bop playing career with a hint of his later development into a free-form performer His approach was always honest and raw.
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.

Jackie McLean...one of the great altoists.A bargain,as has already been said.I had some of these already,but this proved a good way to fill in the gaps...so I would recommend this to any out there who need to do as I did,or are wanting a great set of Jackie Mac at a rock bottom price.Pretty darn good!

We should be happy to have any of these 8 albums for this price. We all hear so much about Miles, Trane and Bird - and rightly so - but Jackie McLean was right there with them and should be even better known than he is. This collection gives an important snapshot on a key period in his career which spanned more than 40 years at the top of the profession. His playing is intense and innovative.
