New Jackie McLeanGhetto Lullaby (Inner City) ... LP
Steeplechase/Inner City, 1976. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
One of Jackie McLean's beautiful recordings for Steeplechase from the early 70's – a real return to basics that helped form the groundwork for his soulful playing of later years!

Jackie McLeanJackie's Bag ... LP
Blue Note, 1959/1960. Very Good ... $14.99
A real classic by Jackie McLean – a record that's pulled from 2 different sessions, but which stands out with a strikingly unified feel!

New Jackie McLeanNew York Calling (Inner City) ... LP
Steeplechase/Inner City, 1976. Near Mint- ... $13.99
An overlooked gem! During the mid 70s, Jackie McLean cut a few fantastic records that had a very spiritual vibe, and which added in a lot more soul than in previous sessions from the 60s.

A great meeting of these two alto giants – and a wonderfully soulful session that matches Gary Bartz's own great work from the same time!

Marian McPartlandAfter Dark ... LP
Capitol, 1955. Very Good ... $19.99
An excellent album by Marian McPartland – a bit "high concept", but that's what makes it work!
