This album is unique within Lee Morgan's vast and rich Blue Note discography.
With then current employer Art Blakey, band mate Bobby Timmons on piano, Paul
Chambers on bass and Jackie McLean on alto saxophone, the trumpeter abandons
time constraints and stretches out on four, soulful, hard-bop compositions (the
first and the last are by Cal Massey). These hard bop masters are constantly
inspired by Blakey's explosive grooves.
