The Lee Morgan-Wayne Shorter combo is possibly the best ever and a Jazz presentation

Facebook

There have been many combinations of Jazz musicians who have collaborated to make great albums, studio and/or live, this occurs very frequently with Jazz musicians. Its a great opportunity for them to interact and expand their talent even further. Not to mention, very challenging for them in an educational manner, since the improvisational nature of Jazz allows them to experiment with different sounds and techniques. These albums, which can be characterized as jam sessions, are the main reason why Jazz flourishes and only becomes better. I have put together a special playlist (Jazz presentation) on an incredible trumpet and tenor sax combination and which I feel, could possibly be the best ever! In my opinion, of course but I will make the effort and maybe I might just convince some of the listeners here on Jazz Con Class. Either way everyone will win! This dynamic dual consists of Lee Morgan (Trumpet) and Wayne Shorter (Tenor Sax). From 1959 they were playing together, thanks to Art Blakey and his Jazz Messengers project. The name of the album they first jammed together was “Africaine” and will be where this special playlist begins but there will be much more, as they recorded mostly together as Jazz Messengers. When Wayne Shorter released his debut album, “Introducing Wayne Shorter” Lee Morgan was there to add his support. Morgan and Shorter worked together on two albums after leaving the Jazz Messengers and continued working on their own as band leaders, creating the highest quality of Jazz possible, constantly innovating and most of all, establishing themselves as music writers. Two great improvisors that compromised themselves perfectly, outstanding stuff! The Jazz Con Class listeners are really going to love this presentation, check the schedule link for play times, Enjoy!

Here’s a great video of them playing together:
