Prestige (Japan), 1957. New Copy ... $22.99
A really unique little session from Jackie McLean – and one of the few 50s jazz albums to feature the talents of tuba player Ray Draper, a vastly under-rated artist who recorded briefly with McLean and Coltrane at the time!

The amazing debut of Ronnie McNeir – a 70s soul maestro we'd rank right up there with Donny Hathaway, Leroy Hutson, or Leon Ware – but one who's possibly even more impressive, given that he cut this record when he was only 22 years old! The album's quite heavy on keyboards – ... (Soul) read more CD
