Lee Morgan Vol. 3
"On trumpeter Lee Morgan's third album for Blue Note, recorded on 24 March 1957, Morgan's sextet - comprised of Gigi Gryce on alto and flute, Benny Golson on tenor, Wynton Kelly on piano, Paul Chambers on bass and Charlie Persip on drums - showcases five compositions by sideman Benny Golson. The numbers include the fascinating 'Hassan's Dream' as well as 'I Remember Clifford,' a tribute to the late trumpet player Clifford Brown. Tragically, Morgan (a trumpet player like Brown) himself would also meet with an untimely demise, but in 1957, the nineteen year old Philadelphia native was one of the leading trumpeters on the New York jazz scene and remained so until his death at age 33. One of Morgan's most legendary performances, on John Coltrane's celebrated Blue Train album, would be recorded just a few months after this date." 180 gram vinyl in a gatefold sleeve. Presented in mono.
