This landmark Blue Note quartet session from 1962 is quintessential Jackie McLean. Without having to share the front line with another horn, McLean is free to unleash his signature wail with ample support from Walter Davis Jr. (piano), Herbie Lewis (bass) and Billy Higgins (drums). Like other McLean sessions of the period, Let Freedom Ring features first-rate compositions whose melodies give way to stirring solos. Comprised of three McLean originals ("Melody for Melonae," "Rene," "Omega" - dedicated to his daughter, son and mother respectively) plus the Bud Powell ballad "I'll Keep Loving You." Musicians: Jackie McLean, alto saxophone Walter Davis Jr, piano Herbie Lewis, bass Billy Higgins, drums Features: • Remastered and reissued as part of the Blue Note 75th anniversary vinyl reissue campaign • Vinyl initiative spearheaded by current Blue Note Records President, Don Was, to include 100 essential Blue Note albums • Includes special Blue Note 75 vinyl sleeve that features album cover art for 75 Blue Note titles • First run of vinyl to include Blue Note 75th logo on back of package • Key to the Blue Note 75th anniversary vinyl reissue campaign is the creation of high quality audio at an affordable price • All year long Blue Note will celebrate their iconic artists and the history of the label with various events, digital initiatives, vinyl campaigns and more Jackie McLean Let Freedom Ring Track Listing: 1.
