Our videclip this week features the late and very great Jackie McLean. Jackie McLean is a favourite alto player here on CJ and we like this contemporary take on Appointment in Ghana from the great Jackie’s Bag album on Blue Note. Check out Cecil McBee’s bass solo and some typically propulsive piano from McCoy Tyner.
