Description

Limited edition reissue of a classic 1981 SteepleChase LP on standard weight vinyl, cut from the original lacquers.

On May 31, 1981 trumpeter/composer John McNeil's 5th release Clean Sweep was recorded at the famed Rudy van Gelder Studio with all-star sidemen (Dave Liebman, Joanne Brackeen, Rufus Reid and Billy Hart). McNeil dedicated this album to the world-renowned brass teacher Carmine Caruso. John McNeil (born March 23, 1948) is one of the most influential trumpeters today. Despite his debilitating health condition which he has been fighting all his life, McNeil has a fully active career both as performer and educator.

Personnel: John McNeil (trumpet, flugelhorn), Dave Liebman (soprano saxophone), Joanne Brackeen (piano), Rufus Reid (bass), Billy Hart (drums)

"He seems to have the trick of drawing the best from his sidemen." - Melody Maker

"Plays his horn with a soulfulness that is rarely heard these days. [His] poetic, dusky-toned trumpet is very close to song." - Chicago Tribune

"McNeil's solos were by and large the most incisive features of the night." - Daily Mail
