Yes indeed! This is very early LEE Morgan and a perfect example of how talented he was and where how bright his future would be in the world of Jazz. Yes indeed, this album was recorded in 1956 and that made Lee Morgan only 18 years old. It was his official FIRST recording as a leader and features the “support” of 4 other great musicians who were much older than him, Horace Silver – piano,Clarence Sharpe – alto saxophone, Wilbur Ware – bass, Philly Joe Jones – drums. A great album and a must have if you are a Jazz collector!
