Description

Alto saxophonist Jackie McLean was one of the few jazz musicians to come up through Bebop and incorporate free jazz into his style. Even though A Fickle Sonance preceded McLean's intense 1962 album 'Let Freedom Ring', the playing remained in a swinging blues-oriented style, showing no hint of the direction his music was about to take. The sidemen on the date (Tommy Turrentine [trumpet], Sonny Clark [piano], and Butch Warren [bass]) prove to be an invigorating combi-nation of musicians, however not as involved in the burgeoning free music as drummer Billy Higgins.

At the time of these sessions, Higgins had already played with Ornette Coleman, providing a link to the avant-garde, but nevertheless his playing follows the hard bop pace of the others. McLean provides two original compositions, 'Subdued' and title track 'A Fickle Sonance', while Clark, Turrentine, and Warren fill the remaining tracks.

Playlist

Drift Recommends


Alongside a weekly playlist of new and old tracks (tune in via the news section), all of the Drift staff also contribute to a weekly 'Drift Recommends' playlist.

Updated every Friday, it's full of new tracks that we love, absolute bangers that have popped back into our heads and all sorts of other weird avenues. It is supposed to sound a little bit like that feeling of walking through the door at Drift.

You can subscribe to it via our Spotify public profile.
