It was Charles Mingus who, in the mid-1950s, first tried to alter Jackie McLean’s playing style, which was fully entrenched in Charlie Parker’s sound at the time. “I never really sounded like Bird, but that was my mission”, said McLean during a WBGO radio interview. “I didn’t care if people said that I copied him; I loved Bird’s playing so much. But Mingus was the one that really pushed me away from the idea and forced me into thinking about having an individual sound and concept.”
