American jazz alto saxophonist, composer, bandleader, and educator Jackie McLean is one of the few musicians to be elected to the DownBeat Hall of Fame in the year of their death. Along with Sonny Rollins, McLean played on Miles Davis’ Dig album, when he was 20 years old. McLean’s early recordings as leader were in the hard bop school. He later became an exponent of modal jazz without abandoning his foundation in hard bop. Throughout his career he was known for a distinctive tone, akin to the tenor saxophone and often described with such adjectives as “bitter-sweet”, “piercing”, or “searing”, a slightly sharp pitch, and a strong foundation in the blues. He passed away in 2006 at the age of 74. - wikipedia

Jackie McLean is one of the most original and modern alto saxophonists, perhaps the one who most continued Charlie Parker’s experiments. Hip Strut (from the New Soil album, 1959) is an excellent example of his unique position between tradition and innovation. It is in fact a classic blues progression, which Jackie McLean nevertheless transforms in his own way. Every jazz musician should learn to balance tension and relaxation during solos. In this Jackie McLean is an undisputed master, a superb example to study and imitate. - italianpiano.com
