5.0 out of 5 stars Superb, bouncy album! 17 Aug 2002
Format:Audio CD
This is one of Lee Morgan's best records. The title track bounces along and is superbly memorable.
It features Wayne Shorter, Ron Carter and Herbie Hancock, three musicians who were working with Miles Davis at the time. "The Procrastinator" was recorded at the same time as Miles Davis' record "Nefertiti". Whilst I love Miles Davis' records of that time I feel that this is a more enjoyable album than "Nefertiti". Try it, I am sure that you will not regret it!

5.0 out of 5 stars one of the best you've never heard of 20 Dec 2002
By Peter G. Young - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
the rhythm section on this miraculous set of music is simply the best on any morgan album i've heard....Carter, Hancock, and Shorter aided in this recording in the midst of their own Nefertiti sessions with (miles)Davis, if that gives any indication of the kind of mix going on here...Carter's unique voice on the bass is perhaps more audible on this album than others(his interactions with soloists, especially with Shorter, on 'Stopstart'is quite simply disturbing)
But the quality of the actual recording of Procrastinator allows the same to be said for all...Hutcherson and Hancock are like two sides of a coin while Higgins is as usual infectious...
Morgan seems lofted by this stellar cast to some of his best work...
Worthy of note is the fact that Procrastinator is the last recorded display of a certain chemistry shared between Morgan and Shorter which began with their sharing the front line in Blakey's Jazz Messengers(the first recording of this union is Art Blakey's 'Africaine')....Shorter contributes two originals(Dear Sir and Rio)which not only seem to sincerely enhance the total character of 'Procrastinator' - as if they were written specifically for the project and its parameters - but stand quite tall amongst Shorter's own compositional cannon(any fan of Shorter's extraterrestrial writing abilities should perk up at such a statement)...
yet despite the obvious caliber of individual musicians present, there seems to be something uncanny, a.k.a. VERY special, about the sustained mood and sound of Procrastinator as a total project that is not often encountered...LISTEN to this album(particularly 'Stopstart' at high volume)and lose some sonic virginity!

5.0 out of 5 stars I can't believe this "limited edition" cd is still available 8 Mar 2002
By Lee C. Grady - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I agree with the other reviewers here. This 1967 set does not get the credit it deserves in the standard jazz guides. I'm a big Lee Morgan fan, and I think this is one of his best. It ranks with "Search for the New Land" and "Sidewinder." Morgan's playing is right on; his tone is as full and rich as on any of his recordings. The compositions (four by Morgan and two by Wayne Shorter) are excellent. And consider the band: Wayne Shorter, ts; Bobby Hutcherson, vb; Herbie Hancock, p; Ron Carter, b; Billy Higgins, d. This music first appeared as half of a two-record set issued in the late 1970s (the album was also titled "The Procrastinator" and included a session from 1969). The current CD release is part of Blue Note's Connoisseur series, and once its sold out it may not appear again for some time. If you're any kind of Morgan fan, or a fan of 1960s hard bop, get it while you can!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A true Lee Morgan Session 6 Jun 2003
By "sranney22" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
It is a shame that an album like this would be overlooked and placed as a limited edition Blue Note album. Every song on this album is unique in their own little way and they are all truly brilliant. The line-up is enough to just go get this album, including Bobby Hutcherson, Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Billy Higgins, Ron Carter,and of course Lee Morgan. This album mixes a little ballad with a lot of post bop, bluesy material. If you are familiar with Lee Morgan and his earlier work such as Leeway and Sidewinder, you should really check this album out. If not, I recommend strongly checking out stuff he did with Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers such as Moanin', or an earlier Lee album like Leeway. But anyways The Procrastinator should have not procrastinated this long. This is a masterpiece.

4.0 out of 5 stars One of Morgan's best 20 July 2004
By Blues Bro - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Well, as good as this session was, Blue Note did not hear a hit, so they decided to let it sit in the valuts 15 years. Then they re-release it in the 90's as a limited edition. The good news is that is still available. The sound is much influenced by Miles great quintet, and Lee sounds a bit restrained. Its similar to "Search for the new Land" but not as good. Still, a very nice album.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Overlooked Classic 2 Feb 2002
By Micheal - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Procrastinator is a must have for any jazz collection. It's simply one of the best jazz recordings of the 1960s.
From the late 1950s to his death in 1972, Lee Morgan was one of the leading trumpet players in jazz. He played with Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers before embarking on a solo career in 1962. I've got nearly all his recordings and Procrastinator is, by far, my favourite Lee Morgan album.
Procrastinator was a session date for Blue Note Records recorded at Rudy van Gelder's studio on 14 July 1967. Sidemen included Wayne Shorter (Weather Report) on tenor sax, Ron Carter (Miles Davis group) on bass, Herbie Hancock on piano and Billy Higgins on drums.
Surprisingly, Procrastinator was not released until nearly 20 years after it was recorded; it sat overlooked and forgotten in Blue Note's vault until the late 80s.
Don't make Blue Note's mistake of overlooking this recording. If you're a jazz fan, this is an essential recording for your CD collection.
