Consequence is an album by American saxophonist Jackie McLean recorded in 1965, but not released on Blue Note until 1979 as LT-994. In 1993, it was released as part of the four-disc Mosaic compilation The Complete Blue Note 1964-66 Jackie McLean Sessions, which was limited to 5,000 copies. In 2005, it was finally released on a limited edition CD as Blue Note 11428.[1]


The Allmusic review by Thom Jurek awarded the album 3½ stars and stated: "The music here is much more straight-ahead than on other McLean dates from the 1960s.... This is a welcome addition to the McLean catalog on disc."[2]
