"During his avant-garde period in the early 60s McLean dismissed his earlier recordings, but whatever impossible standards he was setting for himself, his playing on them still sounds fresh, creative, and inspired... The only way McLean's bright, biting sound was ever heard to better advantage was live." - Duck Baker, The Absolute Sound,  5/5 Sonics

Incredible recording (who needs stereo) and wonderful performances.LP review

Cut from the analogue masters by renowned mastering engineer Kevin Gray

200-gram pressing by Quality Record Pressings has a flat edge profile and deep groove label, true to the original LP Deluxe high-gloss tip-on album jacket

A perpetual favorite among Jackie McLean’s earlier recordings, 1957's Lights Out! finds the hard-swinging young alto saxophonist still very much under the wing of Charlie Parker, who had died less than a year earlier. Yet McLean was beginning to find ways out of the seductive artistic security of Bird imitations. For one thing, he was experimenting with tonal variations. 

For another, he was working with Charles Mingus, and Mingus’s genius as a leader included forcing musicians to look deeply into their most cherished stylistic practices. The McLean of Lights Out! is the hot young bebopper with a slightly acid edge to his sound and a solid blues foundation under everything he played.
 
McLean and trumpeter Donald Byrd occasionally engage in the "pecking" technique of mutual improvisation they developed as members of the George Wallington Quintet.
