Lee Morgan Cornbread Vinyl LP

Remastered and Reissued As Part of the Blue Note 75th Anniversary Vinyl Reissue Campaign

A sock-solid sextet session from the mighty Lee Morgan - recorded for Blue Note at the height of his mid-60s powers, and carried off in a beautiful blend of soul jazz and some slight modern touches. The group here is top-shelf all the way through - Jackie McLean on alto, Hank Mobley on tenor, Herbie Hancock on piano, Larry Ridley on bass, and Billy Higgins on drums - the last two of whom do a great job of bringing some complex yet swinging rhythms to the set.

The horn soloists are all as sharp as you might expect - and the album's a striking soulful date from McLean at a time when he was mostly going out a bit more. Titles include the funky "Cornbread," the searching "Our Man Higgins," and the lyrical ballad "Ceora" - plus "Most Like Lee" and "Ill Wind."
