Hardbop trumpet doyen Lee Morgan knew a good thing when it hit him over the head, so when the title track from his 1963 album THE SIDEWINDER became a sleeper smash inaugurating a whole wave of soul jazz boogaloo, he was smart enough to come up with an album along the same lines, thus releasing THE RUMPROLLER.
Picking up right where its famed predecessor left off, RUMPROLLER offers a similar blend of percolating, hard-driving, R&B-derived grooves, occasional Latin rhythmic touches, and harmonically straightforward riffing. A thousand jazzers got on board the SIDEWINDER gravy train in the '60s, but nobody did it better than the originator, which becomes clear upon listening to him lay into the steady-cooking title track as well as the poignant Billie Holiday homage "The Lady."
