Jackie McLean 4, 5, And 6 on 200g Mono LP
Analogue Productions' Prestige Mono Series
Cut from the Analogue Masters by Renowned Mastering Engineer Kevin Gray!
Jackie McLean's aptly titled 1956 release 4, 5, and 6 features recordings from the innovative alto saxophonist in three different settings including tracks with a quartet, an expanded quintet and even a sextet. Supporting players such as Hank Mobley (tenor sax), Donald Byrd (trumpet), Mal Waldron (piano), Doug Watkins (bass) and Art Taylor (drums) join in on the proceedings in disparate incarnations, all with winning results. The dynamic 6-song set is highlighted by Waldron's own stirring ballad "Abstraction" and the sextet's sprawling version of Charlie Parker’s “Confirmation."
”Jackie McLean is musically coming of age. His playing, out of Charlie Parker and Sonny Rollins, has become a personalized, more individual voice in 1956 and he has not lost any of the basic emotion, swinging qualities that help his style live up to the second syllable of his last name so well.” - Ira Gitler/Original Liner Notes
