O’s Notes: Steven Lugerner (cl, fl, sax) leads a quintet that includes Richard Sears (p), Michael Mitchell (d), JJ Kirkpatrick (t) and Garret Lang (b). They celebrate the music of Jackie McLean on Jacknife. The classic music includes three McLean originals notably “Das Dat”. Steve captures all of the edgy, raspy, innovative spirit of McLean without requiring the listener to take two aspirin for the second take making this a worthy tribute.
