JACKIE MCLEAN & MICHAEL CARVIN - ANTIQUITY























Jackie McLean with Michael Carvin for Inner City from 1975
Two files-McLean & Carvin
This unusual project matches alto saxophonist Jackie McLean (also heard on flute, percussion, and a little bit of piano) and drummer/percussionist Michael Carvin in a set of duets. The music (all originals) is atmospheric and often haunting, making a lot of use of space. Some sections meander, but the four-part title piece (which depicts slaves crossing the Atlantic Ocean) certainly holds one's interest. This is a unique project in the discography of Jackie McLean, and is well worth a few close listens. ~ Scott Yanow, All Music Guide
Worthless bit of useless info:De I Comahlee Ah was sampled on one of those Kraut DJ (Michael Reinboth?) 12"s on Compost(don't bother hunting it down-it's crap)
Ripped @320 from the original vinyl-Steeplechase put it out on cd in Europe but it's not that easy to find

Wow! A thousand?? I wouldn't have thought Jackie had such renown between blog readers! :)
Thank you very much for this disc, bacoso, I can't remember when did I find that Jackie guy, but if it weren't for shares like this, I would still know him only one-sidedly.
