Lee Morgan: Introducing Lee Morgan
(Blue Note, 1956)
Originally released under Hank Mobley's name, this album features a
youthful (age 18) Lee Morgan on trumpet, Hank Jones (piano), Doug Watkins
(bass), and SArt Taylor (drums). Lee clearly exhibits the influence of
Clifford Brown in this recording. This set was also released under the
name A-1: The Savoy Sessions.

Jimmy Smith: The Sermon
(Blue Note, 1958)
An all-star "blowing date" featuring Jimmy Smith (organ), Lou Donaldson
(alto sax), Tina Brooks (tenor sax), Kenny Burrell (guitar), Art Blakey
(drums), and a very young Lee Morgan (trumpet), this CD and it's sister
("Houseparty") are almost constructed like a jam session, but the
performances from each musician are highly polished and high-energy.

Lee Morgan: The Sidewinder
(Blue Note, 1963)
This album is trumpeter Lee Morgan's best-known recording;

Lee Morgan: Search for the New Land
(Blue Note, 1964)
Perhaps Lee's best recording as a leader, this session pairs him with
Wayne Shorter (tenor sax), Grant Green (guitar), Herbie Hancock (piano), Reggie Workman (bass), and Billy Higgins (drums).

Lee Morgan: Cornbread
(Blue Note, 1965)
Another in a series of Blue Note classics from Morgan, here with Jackie
McLean (alto sax), Hank Mobley (tenor), Herbie Hancock (piano), Larry
Ridley (bass) and Billy Higgins (drums). Hancock's introduction to
Morgan's "Ceora" (a jazz standard) is a highlight.
