music really does pass down through families, as this show by renmclean, son of jackie mclean. musical families, theatre families, etc etc. mclean really seems to stretch his legs a bit on this, just taking a run at what he wanted to play. it’s really nice, and must have been mesmerizing in person. that can be a bit dangerous sometimes – your mind starts to drift, your eyes close… – but there’s no falling asleep with this.
