Jackie 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. 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.

Recorded July 13 and 20, 1956 at Van Gelder Studio, New Jersey. Mono. Originally released by Prestige (PRLP 7048). This reissue released in 2012 by Analogue Productions.
