5.0 out of 5 stars "Candy" Is Oh So Sweet September 27, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Since the review below is not very informative, I thought I'd try to write one that is. "Candy" is the last of Lee Morgan's six 1950s sessions for Blue Note. With the sweet lineup of Sonny Clark on piano, Doug Watkins on bass and Art Taylor on drums, this is Lee's only quartet recording as a leader. "Candy" is a classic swinging, hard bop affair recorded on November 18, 1957. It features an all-standard repertoire, with the exception of Jimmy Heath's "C.T.A," which come to think of it, is probably a standard too nowadays. Morgan didn't record again as a leader until the 1960 album "Leeway," but in 1958 he did appear on classics like Jimmy Smith's "The Sermon" and Hank Mobley's "Peckin' Time" among others before joining Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers in October of that year. (If you're interested I have reviewed all three of the CDs I just mentioned.) With the other Lee Morgan 50s sessions only available as expensive imports (I believe the limited edition Mosaic set collecting all of these sessions has finally sold out), "Candy" is a delicious look at a young trumpeter who would become one of the defining voices of 60s jazz.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lee Morgan October 7, 2005
By Bomojaz
Format:Audio CD
Of all Lee Morgan's many albums, I think this is his best - it at least is the one I like most. It's the only album Morgan made where he's the only horn; he's joined by Sonny Clark (p) Doug Watkins (b) and Art Taylor (d). Tune selection is excellent: the title track and Jimmy Heath's C.T.A. really swing, as does ALL AT ONCE YOU LOVE HER, which contains excellent solo work by Lee. Clark is in fine form. Everything just clicked perfectly on this outing, and it ended up being a great date for everyone. Hard bop at its finest.

5.0 out of 5 stars How Sweet It Is! March 1, 2008
By JoeyD
Format:MP3 Music
Definitely one of Lee's best as a leader. "Candy" is about as sweet as it gets and my personal favorite by this legendary jazz trumpeter, perhaps just a fraction of a hair behind "Cornbread". Like Kenny Dorham's "Quiet Kenny", this would be Lee's only recording without a sax man beside him, his only quartet album. And like the former, this one is truly deserving of being dubbed a classic. I was amazed when I came upon the review page and saw that it had only been reviewed seven times. Then again, there are so many great jazz recordings that so few people have heard of or listen to. I loved every piece of `Candy'; there is not one song that is even close to being a let down.

It also helps having an amazing trio behind you - Sonny Clark on piano, Art Taylor on drums, and Doug Watkins on bass. The latter left this world way too soon, what a talent, what a shame (he died in an automobile accident in February of 1962 almost a month before his 28th birthday). He was really coming into his own at the time of this 1957-58 recording, coming off of the huge success of Sonny Rollins' "Saxophone Colossus". Both Taylor and Clark are excellent as well, Taylor often times reminds me of the great Art Blakey, he's just that great. And Sonny Clark is in my opinion one of the most underrated jazz pianists ever. The four of them are all in perfect rhythm and sync on this set. Bottom line, these cats could flat out play and this one is too good to pass up if you are a fan of great music.

An awesome accomplishment!

5.0 out of 5 stars Picture Of A Rising Star May 2, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Lee Morgan was still a youngster when he recorded this album, but you'd never know it. His star was ascending, and this recording captures him during a period when his technical ability, artistic sensibility and youthful exuberance were all present in equal parts. The result? A beautiful album by a trumpete player celebrating his gift with a solid backing band. The perfect introduction to Morgan's music, it stands on its own, highlighting his jazz roots, before he explored his funkier side on albums such as "Cornbread."

5.0 out of 5 stars Nothing Artificial in this Sweet Music January 27, 2009
Format:Audio CD
I agree with Michael Richman that this is an outstanding session from Morgan and friends. Morgan's solos are fresh and inventive. One advantage of the quartet format is that the rhythm section gets more focus than they would in a quintet or sextet with extra horns. So, this album is a refreshing change from the other (equally outstanding) Morgan albums of the 50s and 60s which always featured a tenor sax, but sometimes added an alto sax, trombone, or guitar.

Lee shows himself to be quite versatile. On "Candy" and "C.T.A", he swings with rhythmic vitality. On the ballads, he plays with genuine feeling and a delicate touch. Doug Watkins, Art Taylor, and especially Sonny Clark all provide strong support to this outstanding and apparently underappreciated album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple and plain. Import CD's gets the job done right the first time.
The cd was awesome. Top five trumpeter without a doubt. Whenever I buy a cd, I always look to see if Import CD's is selling it first.

The more I learn about him the more I like his music. Lee Morgan was a veritable genius. His end was almost Shakespearean though.
