Let Freedom Ring Studio album by Jackie McLean Released 1962 Recorded 1962 Genre Jazz Length 38:06 Label Blue Note Producer Alfred Lion Jackie McLean chronology A Fickle Sonance (1961) Let Freedom Ring (1962) Tippin' the Scales (1962) Let Freedom Ring is an album by jazz saxophonist Jackie McLean, recorded in 1962. McLean wrote three of the four compositions. "Melody for Melonae" is dedicated to his daughter (as was an earlier composition, "Little Melonae"), and appeared as "Melanie" on Matador, a later recording that he made with Kenny Dorham. The (slower-tempo) performance on Let Freedom Ring is notable as being the first time that McLean used "provocative upper-register screams".[1] "Rene" and "Omega" are both blues-related pieces, the former with a standard twelve-bar structure and harmonies, the latter more abstract and modal. The one non-McLean track is Bud Powell's ballad, "I'll Keep Loving You" Allmusic has given the album a rating of five stars (of a possible five).[2] The Penguin Guide to Jazz gives Let Freedom Ring a four-star rating (of a possible four), and includes the album in a selected "Core Collection."[3] Track listing "Melody for Melonae" (McLean) –13:24 "I'll Keep Loving You" (Powell) –6:18 "Rene" (McLean) –10:03 "Omega" (McLean) –8:29 (Recorded on 19 March 1962 by Rudy Van Gelder at the Van Gelder Studio, Eaglewood Cliffs, New Jersey.)
