"I learned today that Jackie McLean passed away at the age of 74. To remember his powerful sound and searching spirit, I stepped away from some of my gospel and funk stuff to revisit some of his music. I've got something like 10 Jackie Mclean albums, mostly on Blue Note. Along with Let Freedom Ring, this is one of my favorites.

The first cut is a really catchy swinging tune whose head will stick with you. I don't know how much work Tommy Turrentine and Jackie did together, but they have great chemistry and great balance. Billy Higgins swings hard and this is very cohesive group.

The second track sticks out for me as a rearrangement of "Embraceable You". I also like the Enitnerrut, with it's Afro-Cuban feel.

Jackie Mac has a sound that pierces you to the core. It's sharp and jagged. Flirts with freedom but never forgets its bop influences.

Jackie Mac's work has moved me and this CD is one of several great entry points to the life of a great musician, educator and spirit.

5 stars.
