Any particular style of playing which represents an authentic way of musical feeling is genuine expression.

An obvious omission is the Jazz Messenger’s first album with Horace Silver(Doodlin’,The Preacher).
A cornerstone of the Blue Note label roster prior to his tragic demise, Lee Morgan was one of hard bop’s greatest trumpeters, and indeed one of the finest of the ’60s. An all-around master of his instrument modeled after Clifford Brown, Morgan boasted an effortless, virtuosic technique and a full, supple, muscular tone that was just as powerful in the high register. Toward the end of his career, Morgan was increasingly moving into modal music and free bop, hinting at the avant-garde but remaining grounded in tradition. He had already overcome a severe drug addiction, but sadly, he would not live to continue his musical growth; he was shot to death by his common-law wife in 1972. Edward Lee Morgan was born in Philadelphia on July 10, 1938. He grew up a jazz lover, and his sister apparently gave him his first trumpet at age 14.

Morgan is at his inventive best, eight years into his recording career with Blue Note. Shorter, Hancock and Grant Green each turn in a sublime performance, while Workman and Higgins are rock solid. For the rest of the album, moods vary from track to track, with the minor-keyed melancholy of Melancholee, the outrageously pacy Mr Kenyatta, and a look backwards to mainstream bebop in The Pirate.
Lee Morgan's tense, urgent trumpet with his searing high register and funky timing was the essence of harp-bop. He became a professional musician in his late teens when he joined Dizzy Gillespie's big band in 1956. It was the perfect launch-pad for his career and he went on to play with some of the best in the genre: Art Blakey, John Coltrane and Benny Golson.
