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!
