Lee Morgan (trumpet)


Lee Morgan (trumpet)


The trumpeter Lee Morgan (1938-1972) will always be associated with his surprise pop hit “The Sidewinder”. As a boy-wonder he had already made a splash in the Dizzy Gillespie Big Band at the age of 18. And Blue Note label immediately signed him.

Unfortunately, Morgan’s life and career were dogged by drug problems, which often forced him to leave the stage and recuperate for longer times. In 1972, his wife shot Morgan during a performance break at the New York Jazzclub Slug’s  aloon on. He bled to death because the ambulance did not make it in time due to severe weather – now the subject of the documentary “I Called Him Morgan” (2017).

In this set there are albums originally on Blue Note, VeeJay and Riverside. They feature him as leader, as part of Art Blakey’s Jazz Messangers and guesting on other people’s albums such as John Coltrane’s “Blue Train”. Apart from ‘Trane, they feature Johnny Griffin, Jimmy Smith, Bobby Timmons, Horace Silver, Donald Byrd, Hank Mobley, Benny Golson, George Coleman, Wayne Shorter and Clifford Jordan.
