Personnel: Lee Morgan; Curtis Fuller, George Coleman, Paul Chambers, Ray Bryant, Art Taylor.
Lee Morgan was only a tender 19 years of age when he led this 1957 Blue Note date, but his technique surpassed most of the more seasoned trumpeters on the scene. Technically agile and possessed of a bright, clear tone (he clearly belongs to the lineage of Dizzy Gillespie), Morgan shines on CITY LIGHTS, and his sidemen--including saxophonist George Coleman, trombonist Curtis Fuller, and bassist Paul Chambers--are no slouches either. Strong writing from jazz composer Benny Golson makes this a thoroughly enjoyable hard bop session.
