It was Charles Mingus who, in the mid-1950s, first
tried to alter Jackie McLeanâs playing style, which
was fully entrenched in Charlie Parkerâs sound at
the time. âI never really sounded like Bird, but that
was my missionâ, said McLean during a WBGO radio
interview. âI didnât care if people said that I copied
him; I loved Birdâs playing so much. But Mingus
was the one that really pushed me away from the
idea and forced me into thinking about having an
individual sound and concept.â McLean (born in New
York on May 17, 1931; he died on March 31, 2006, at
the age of 73) is featured here on his LP New Soil.
Although it wasnât the first session he recorded for
Blue Note, it was the first one released. As the title
suggests, McLeanâs main goal on this album was to
go beyond the limits of bop.
