New Soil is an album by American saxophonist Jackie McLean recorded in 1959 and released on the Blue Note label.[1]


Template:Album ratings The Allmusic review by Steve Huey awarded the album 4½ stars and stated "New Soil wasn't the first session Jackie McLean recorded for Blue Note, but it was the first one released, and as the title suggests, the first glimmerings of McLean's desire to push beyond the limits of bop are already apparent... It could be argued that McLean never recorded a bad album for Blue Note, and New Soil got his career with the label off to a terrifically stimulating start".[2]
