Lee Morgan

Jazz trumpeter Lee Morgan was best known for his classic album, The Sidewinder, released in 1964. It was hugely influential with the long, funky title track quickly becoming a jazz standard. His follow up, The Rumproller, was made in the same image with a funky opener followed by a clutch of hard bop tunes. This one includes The Lady, a tribute to Billie Holiday.

Lee Morgan

Trumpeter, Lee Morgan, earned his jazz chops playing with John Coltrane and Art Blakey. He was prominent in the ‘60s with classic albums such as The Sidewinder (1963) and the equally superb Cornbread (1965). For this he got together an ace band featuring Herbie Hancock, Hank Mobley, Billy Higgins, Jackie McClean and Larry Ridley. Sadly, Morgan was shot and killed by his common-law wife in 1972.
