Product Description:

Personnel: Lee Morgan (trumpet); Jackie McClean (alto saxophone); Bobby Timmons (piano); Paul Chambers (bass); Art Blakey (drums).
Recorded at the Van Gelder Studio, Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey on April 28, 1960. Originally released on Blue Note (84034). Includes liner notes by Nat Hentoff and Bob Blumenthal.
In the 1960's hard-bop sweepstakes, one of Freddie Hubbard's true rivals was Lee Morgan. The late Morgan was known for his brassy, searing style, but he could be tender and lyrical as well. Recorded in 1960 (significantly before Morgan's success with THE SIDEWINDER), LEE-WAY is in many ways one of the most quintessential hard bop discs ever recorded. The band is incredible, practically an edition of Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers: Blakey on drums, Bobby Timmons's earthy piano, Jackie McLean's acidic, fluid alto saxophone, and Miles Davis's bassist Paul Chambers. This is primo, driving hard bop, with slight overtones of the era's soul-jazz sound.
