Limited Edition 200 Gram LP! Pressed at Quality Record Pressings!
Mastered by Kevin Gray & Cut from the Original Mono 100% Analog Master Tapes!


This item not eligible for any further discount offers!

Part of the ultimate audiophile Prestige mono reissues from Analogue Productions — 25 of the most collectible, rarest, most audiophile-sounding Rudy Van Gelder recordings ever made. All mastered from the original analog master tapes by mastering maestro Kevin Gray. 200-gram LPs pressed at state-of -the-art plant Quality Record Pressings and plated by Gary Salstrom. Deep groove label pressings, tip-on jackets on thick cardboard stock.

McLean's "4, 5 and 6" gives us a brilliant example of the musician we've all grown to love over the years: an alto sax giant constantly surrounded by the finest jazz players.

Here the vitality of the McLean alto is heard in three different size groups.

The rhythm section remains the same for all the combinations and is made up of Mal Waldron who was Jackie's teammate in the Charlie Mingus group at various times during 1956; Doug Watkins, the Detroit bass product who made his mark with the Jazz Messengers and Horace Silver's group; Arthur Taylor, the mustachioed swinger heard previously with Art Farmer-Gigi Gryce, Bud Powell, etc. and who split duties as Prestige's house drummer with Philly Joe Jones.

The quartet finds Jackie in the standards department interpreting "Sentimental Journey", "Why Was I Born?" and "When I Fall In Love". Mal Waldron contributes solos on all three and Doug Watkins travels a solo road on the "Journey".

The scene shifts to the originals section as another Detroit gift to the Eastern jazz locale, Donald Byrd, makes the group a quintet. Donald, after a short stint with the Messengers, was featured with the Max Roach group. He and Jackie teamed up in "Lights Out". Both originals in this segment of the session are by pianists. The somber beauty of "Abstraction" was created by Mal Waldron and the pulsating "Contour" was molded by Kenny Drew.

Originals only continue as Hank Mobley, another ex-Messenger who was promoted to vice-president in the Horace Silver Group, swells the group to sextet size. The original is Charlie Parker's classic, "Confirmation".

Thus - 4, 5 and 6... henceforth - get your kicks.

"When you listen to Jackie McLean on 4, 5 & 6, his third release as a leader, you hear a young, passionate, hungry artist in search of a musical identity. The influence of Charlie Parker on his sound is obvious. The seemingly indelible marks left by Bird are present throughout all of McLean's '50s sessions for Prestige.

4, 5, & 6 is a strong outing for the legendary alto saxophonist and his swinging rhythm section of pianist Mal Waldron, bassist Doug Watkins and drummer Art Taylor. Detroiter Donald Byrd joins in on trumpet for the recording's two original compositions, Waldron's "Abstraction and Kenny Drew's "Contour. Tenor great Hank Mobley makes the group a sextet on Parker's "Confirmation... 4, 5 & 6 is a fun, swinging document of an inspired blowing session with some of the hippest musicians of a bygone era. It's exciting to hear McLean, so rooted in bebop, moving forward in identifiable new directions. "
- allaboutjazz.com, John Barron, March 2007

"During his avant-garde period in the early 60s McLean dismissed his earlier recordings, but whatever impossible standards he was setting for himself, his playing on them still sounds fresh, creative, and inspired... The only way McLean's bright, biting sound was ever heard to better advantage was live." - Duck Baker, The Absolute Sound, April 2013, 3.5 Music, 5/5 Sonics
