This podcast pays tribute to the great alto sax player Jackie McLean on what would have been his 78th birthday on May 17. A protege of Charlie Parker and Miles Davis, McLean had a wide ranging influence on the jazz idiom. To those of us in the Hartford Connecticut area, where Jackie made his home in his later years, his influence is even deeper. He is responsible for mentoring many young jazz artists in the area and has created this great jazz scene in our city. In addition to being the Jazz director at University of Hartford's Hartt school of music, he was the founder of the Artists Collective which fosters the Arts in many forms in the urban areas of Hartford.
