Format: Audio CD
This is an excellent CD by the great hard-bebopper. HIs tight, almost wirey sound leaps over the jazz/R & B landscape described as hard bop. A richer, and very expressive rendition of "A House is Not a Home" (!) is one of the highlights here. Excellent dance and party music on the other cuts. The audience whoops it up a bit too much on one track, but it does preserve the live feeling. Recommended for McLean fans, and sax aficionados in general.

This album exemplifies all that I find best in Jackie McLean. In the liner notes he mentions that in the 1950s Art Blakey taught him how to play coherent, BS-free solos which interested the audience as well as the band. This album shows that in the 1980s he still hadn't lost the trick. Not a wasted breath on the whole CD. Pretty good band, too.

I'm no jazz expert, so this will be short. Personally I find this to be one of McLean's best. The first song "Five" is excellent, driven music. "A House is Not a Home" is another stand out track. "J Mac's Dynasty" and "Multi-Woman" also stand out for me. My personal favorite is "King Tut Strut" -- this piece is more serious in tone than the album as a whole. It's absolutely wild, strong music, I don't know where else I have heard such beautiful, wild wailing. I really can't recommend this album enough if you're looking for jazz that "steps out" a little.

This is truly one of the great Jackie McLean albums. After nearly a decade away from recording, the veteran altoist teamed up with his son, René McLean (who triples on tenor, soprano, and flute), pianist Hotep Idris Galeta, bassist Nat Reeves, and drummer Carl Allen for a very passionate and high-powered live set. Whether it be originals by René (including "J. Mac's Dynasty") or Galeta, a very intense version of "A House Is Not a Home," or Jackie's "Bird Lives," this is dynamic and consistently exciting music. The go-for-broke solos (which transcend any easy categories) and Jackie's unique sharp tone make this an essential CD, one of the top recordings to be released in 1990. Review by Scott Yanow which i had to look up since this sight doesnt bother telling us who the cats are who play on it,,,and i second his opinion of course..this set is killin...i havent heard mclean lately..does he still have it ??
