Lee Morgan – Tom Cat


Lee Morgan and Jackie McLean star on this 6-piece ensemble session. Blue Note assembled a band for this session which looked like a reunion of Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers. Lee Morgan, Jackie McLean, Curtis Fuller, and of course Art Blakey all star on this CD. Only McCoy Tyner on piano somehow missed playing with Art’s group. I like the writing on this session. The group’s unity suggests rehearsal and mutual interest in achieving great results. Lee hit a groove in the mid-60′s, recording several great sessions. Hearing him play with McCoy is a special treat.
