Morgan The Pirate - Lee Morgan feat.

Grant Green Morgan The Pirate.

One is "Sidewinder," an album whose great popularity and commercial success for Alfred Lion's tiny Blue Note Records should not be reason to ignore it. "Sidewinder" is a clever piece by Morgan, with an engaging rhythm and irresistible groovin', danceable quality that distinguishes it from the leaden bossa nova melody of Horace Silver's "Song for My Father," the recording that became the other big hit for Blue Note in the 1960s. The solos on the Morgan album are exceedingly well-crafted, with Morgan himself taking the most adventurous, inventive yet well-executed and satisfying turns on each tune.

Edward Lee Morgan was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, on July 10, 1938, the youngest of Otto Ricardo and Nettie Beatrice Morgan's four children. A leading trumpeter and composer, he recorded prolifically from 1956 until a day before his death in February 1972. Originally interested in the vibraphone, he soon showed a growing enthusiasm for the trumpet. Although it was recorded in 1964, the album was shelved for two years, then issued with the original catalogue number 84169. The album reached on Billboard's "Black Albums" chart and on "Pop Albums". All songs composed by Lee Morgan.

Lee Morgan, Wayne Shorter, Grant Green, Herbie Hancock, Reggie Workman, and Billy Higgins put forth the performance of a lifetime. By their flawless synchronization as a group, they manage to seamlessly explore harmonic and rhythmic concepts and create melodic phrases that are absolute gold. The ideas are even more complemented by the group’s soloing, in which every member proves to be not only technically proficient but highly mature, prioritizing the music before self-indulgence. Plus, their frequent shift in moods using chordal/modal harmony makes the tracks acquire a feeling of wonder and. It is one of the rare moments everything lined up for a perfect record to be made, and one of jazz’s finest hours. May the new land be rejoiced, and may we all cherish it forever.

Notes

New York Address on Label
Machine Stamped "Van Gelder"
No "Ear" / "p"

Probably a second press after liberty took over but they were using the remainder of labels created during the pre-liberty days, hence the NY address without the ear
