Consequence” is basically and educational Jazz album that will take you back to 1965 and to where this country was in a transition. Many social issues were being challenged and Jazz music was adjusting to these changes also. One can clearly hear a combination of both Hard Bop and Avant-Garde, not to mention the highest quality of musicianship. Both Jackie McLean and Lee Morgan were in their prime and along with dynamic drummer Billy Higgins and company, they were simply dynamite. Music listeners use the term “Tight” to describe the ability for a band to play in perfect unison, no matter the speed they play, fast or slow. This band consisted of very unique individuals but with the least arrogance to disrupt or change each others goal. This album is perfect example of a “Tight Band.” Checkout the schedule link to find out more about the play times, ENJOY!

Another tight moment on the set is McLean’s “Tolypso,”….Read More
