Japanese Reissue

Superb live album.

Blue Note Japan expands trumpeter Lee Morgan's original two-LP set from four selections to 6. Morgan's music had become much more modal by this time, heavily influenced by John Coltrane, although some of the previously unissued numbers (including a remake of his popular "The Sidewinder") are a bit more straight-ahead.

Bennie Maupin (on tenor, bass clarinet, and flute) is in peak form and the rhythm section (pianist Harold Mabern, bassist Jymie Merritt, and drummer Mickey Roker) is alert and creative. All of the songs are group originals, including two by Morgan (on his "Speedball," Jack DeJohnette sits in on drums). Stimulating and frequently exciting music from late in Lee Morgan's short life.
