Tippin' the Scales
is an album by American saxophonist Jackie McLean. It was originally recorded in 1962, but was first released only in 1979 on the Japanese Blue Note label. Though it's one of the more conventional items in McLean's discography, Tippin' the Scales
offers an opportunity to hear the altoist in an uncommonly relaxed quartet setting, playing at a typically high level of musicianship.
