the Stanley Crouch article was a nice tribute to McLean. I would suggest A.B. Spellman's book "Four Lives in the Bebop Business" (also includes portraits of Herbie Nichols, Cecil Taylor, and Ornette Coleman) for anyone looking to learn more about Jackie McLean. One thing about McLean that sometimes
gives me pause is his consistent out-of-tune-ness. I know he cultivated it and controlled it, but it can be a little off-putting. Any thoughts?
