- Personnel: Jackie McLean (alto saxophone); Tina Brooks (tenor saxophone); Donald Byrd, Blue Mitchell (trumpet); Sonny Clark, Kenny Drew (piano); Paul Chambers (bass); Art Taylor, Philly Joe Jones (drums).
- Recorded at the Van Gelder Studio, Hackensack, New Jersey on January 18, 1959. Includes liner notes by Leonard Feather and Bob Blumenthal.
- By the late 1950’s, alto saxophonist Jackie McLean had shaken off any comparisons to Charlie Parker (or other Parker followers), and had become a distinctive performer in his own right. JACKIE’S BAG, assembled from a couple of 1959 sessions, is a fantastic set of hard bop originals with hints of modality (think Miles Davis from this period) and the avant-garde (think Ornette Coleman, who later recorded with McLean). The original release bolstered by three bonus tunes, BAG is full of surging, moody and ominous-sounding jazz with plenty of wonderful solos from McLean, trumpeter Donald Byrd, and the under-recorded saxophonist Tina Brooks.
