Title : Lee Morgan – The Sidewinder. Format : Vinyl Record. Label : Blue Note. Cat Num : 743886. Barcode : 0602507438869

Release Date : December 4th 2020

Lee Morgan’s magnum opus The Sidewinder — recorded in 1963 and release in 1964 — was both a comeback and a coronation.
The prodigious trumpeter had debuted on Blue Note in 1956 at the age of 18, but personal problems in the early-60s forced him off the scene temporarily. His rebound recording turned out to be The Sidewinder, an assured and energetic set of 5 indelible Morgan originals featuring tenor saxophonist Joe Henderson, pianist Barry Harris, bassist Bob Cranshaw, and drummer Billy Higgins.
The album became his biggest commercial success fuelled by the irrepressible title track.

Release Date : December 4th 2020

In 1967, pianist McCoy Tyner was ready for a new start. He had left the seminal John Coltrane Quartet two years prior and moved on from Coltrane’s label Impulse! Records, as well.
With his Blue Note debut The Real McCoy, he made his masterpiece and firmly established himself as a creative force of his own.
Featuring a world class quartet with Tyner joined by tenor saxophonist Joe Henderson, bassist Ron Carter, and drummer Elvin Jones, the album presented five timeless Tyner originals including “Passion Dance,” “Search for Peace,” and “Blues on the Corner.”
