Morgan, Lee - The Sidewinder

Indie Exclusive Blue
Vinyl LP
Genre: Jazz
Release Date:
Lee Morgan | Blue Note  |  Barcode: 602458592214


Released in 1964, Lee Morgan’s magnum opus, The Sidewinder, was both a comeback and a coronation. The prodigious trumpeter debuted on Blue Note in 1956 at the age of 18, but personal problems in the early ‘60s forced him off the scene. His rebound turned out to be The Sidewinder, featuring tenor saxophonist Joe Henderson, pianist Barry Harris, bassist Bob Cranshaw, and drummer Billy Higgins. The album became his most significant commercial success, fueled by the irrepressible title track. Indie Exclusive LP on 180g blue vinyl. Limited Edition.
