5.0 out of 5 stars Another side of Lee Morgan. 27 April 2004
By Adam Ventress VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
This is not one of Lee Morgan's best known records but it is one of hisbest. Such was the commercial success of 'The Sidewinder' that Blue Notewanted more of the same, and this set, the next chronologically, wasshelved for nearly two years, while a 'Sidewinder sequel' entitled 'TheRumproller' was hurried through to capitilise on the former's success withanother danceable funky opener to grab commercial notoriety.Unfortunately, although 'The Rumproller' is quite good, it was toocontrived to ever be in the same league as its predecessor, In some ways,Morgan was always plagued by 'The Sidewinders' success and the desire torepeat it in years to come.
'Search For The New land' on the other handwas a departure for Morgan, and all the more refreshing for it. The albumsees him expanding his repetoire in terms of both writing and soloingbeyond the big brash catchy hard bop soloing he was known for on his bestwork with Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers and 'The Sidewinder' What it lacksin immediacy and excitement, is made up for in more creative and variedmaterial and great musicianship.
Morgan clearly benefitted also herefrom a great line up supporting him. The sound is immediately differentfrom previous recordings, most obviously because of the inclusion of aguitarist in Grant Green, who excels throughout; while the combination ofthe more eclectic Wayne Shorter and Herbie Hancock avoids any hint of hardbop cliche or predictibilty.
The album is dominated by the 15 and a half minute opening title track,an ambitious extended composition which works very convincingly. The moodis calmer and more pastoral than much of his previous work, and it is bothintroduced and interspersed between solos with a repeated wistful, almostdreamy theme.

5.0 out of 5 stars New Land - amazing voyage of discovery 7 Aug 2006
By Huck Flynn VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
"Sidewinder" may be Morgan's most "popular" hit record but New Land must be his finest moment. More thoughtful in tone than its predecessor but superior in terms of composition, arrangement and even, I think, playing. The title track is a masterpiece in jazz writing for sextet, the moods changing throughout to create a tone poem (almost Zawinul-esque) full of curiosity, rapture, excitement. The solos by Morgan, Shorter and Hancock are magnificent between restatements of the beautiful main theme. I can listen to this 13 minute voyage over and over again. The other tracks are uniformly superb with Morgan and Shorter a perfect pairing, locking horns of memorable opening/closing themes on more typical Morgan material like Joker, the playful and exuberant Morgan the Pirate, and the moody Melancholee. Every performer shines and the solos are impeccable. Grant Green's guitar is used effectively, Workman's bass is solid and warm as ever and Higgins stick work floats deftly and with precision. The collection shows what a strong composer Morgan was and I can hear his influence on Shorter's later work. Jazz Top Ten material - no question.

5.0 out of 5 stars A jazz gem! 24 Oct 2008
By Louis O
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
10 out of 10 for this one!
Lee Morgan was truly one of the greatest Jazz artist of all time.
That's a bold statement to make when you realise how deep the ocean is when it comes to jazz legends of the past.

My jazz collection spans from Charlie Parker, Chet Baker, Miles, Coltrane to contemporary jazz.

Lee Morgan had a very distinctive style that combined the power and delivery of Louis Armstrong with the finesse and subtle expression of Miles Davies.
Just listen to the way he bends his notes at it will bring a smile to your face.

Search For The New Land, expresses pain, anxiety and frustration with hope during a period of darkness in America's history during the civil rights movement of the 60's.
Wayne Shorter, Grant Green and Herbie Hancock step up to the plate to complete this masterpiece. These guys, all jazz greats in their own right, were on the top of the game and it shows.

As mentioned by the other reviewers, Lee Morgan has had success with Sidewinder, which is a great album. However, this one is better - it's one of my favourite album's because of demonstrates Lee's talents as a composer, a trumpet player and a band leader.

Lee Morgan had a sense of humour, as he always entitled an album track as a word-play on his name.

Buy it, You'll love it!

This is one of trumpeter Lee Morgan's finest BLUE NOTE sessions, recorded on February 15, 1964, with a stellar sextet featuring Wayne Shorter(tenor sax), Herbie Hancock(piano), Grant Green(guitar), Reggie Workman(bass) & Billy Higgins(drums).
Everyone's in superb form on five of Morgan's memorable originals, the highlights being 'The Joker', 'Mr Kenyatta' and the lyrical 16-minute title-track.
The creative hard bop on 'Search For The New Land' still sounds fresh almost 50 years later and this overlooked album is an essential item in any modern jazz collection.
