Jackie McLean on Blue Note / Claude Ranger: Canadian Jazz Legend

The first part of the program will be dedicated to three historical recordings on the Blue Note label by the superb alto sax player Jackie McLean, one of the artists making the transition between bebop, hard bop and modern jazz. The second part will be an homage to drummer Claude Ranger, about whom Mark Miller recently published a book titled Canadian Jazz Legend: Claude Ranger. As there appear to be no recordings under his name, we will listen to cds under different leaders with Claude Ranger on drums.
