2024 restock. Released in the Blue Note Tone Poet series. 1979 release. "Jackie McLean's 1960s Blue Note output is a fascinating body of work, especially viewed with the benefit of hindsight. In between recording two venturous modernist sessions -- Let Freedom Ring and One Step Beyond -- that would set the tone for the alto saxophonist's future explorations, came the seemingly more conventional and relaxed quartet date Tippin' The Scales. Recorded in September 1962 but not released until 1979, the date featured McLean with Sonny Clark on piano, Butch Warren on bass, and Art Taylor on drums delivering a swinging hard bop set that presented 2 originals by McLean ('Tippin' the Scales' and 'Rainy Blues') along with three by Clark ('Nursery Blues,' 'Nicely,' and 'Two For One'), as well as a tender version of Vernon Duke's 'Cabin in the Sky.'"
