It also has a short and tasteful solo by Harold Mabern Jr. the pianist.

To me "The Gigolo" is by far the best of the Lee Morgan's albums and I own every single one.
Alfonso Livianos
He adds much to the enjoyment of this cd, just like about everyone on this album.

Since none of the three reviews below provides any information as to the contents of this fine CD, I thought I would be of assistance. First, don't let the cheesy title fool you -- "The Gigolo" is classic, thoughtful hard bop from a band of Blue Note greats. This disc, recorded over two sessions in the summer of 1965, features the quintet of Wayne Shorter on tenor sax, Harold Mabern on piano, Bob Cranshaw on bass, Billy Higgins on drums, and of course, Lee on trumpet. After the success of "The Sidewinder," all of Lee's albums began with a rocking soul jazz number, and "Yes I Can, No You Can't" plays the part on "The Gigolo." Next of the album's four Morgan originals is the bright and sunny "Trapped," followed by the quick-hitting "Speedball," a tune that Lee would perform consistently live for the rest of his life. (There's a great version on "Live At The Lighthouse" -- see my review.) Two versions of the stunning, reflective title-track (the original and an alternate take) are next, and the performance concludes in very un-Lee Morgan style with the medium-tempo ballad "You Go To My Head," the album's only standard. With "The Gigolo," Morgan demonstrates that he has once again found the winning formula for a successful jazz album.

As much as I love "the procrastinator", "cornbread", and "the sidewinder", this is the definative Lee Morgan album for me. As with all post-sidewinder albums the knock on this one by the jazz-police (the great defenders of cliche and self-important snobbery) is the sidewinderesque first track: "Yes I can, No you can't". For people who can look past labels (and the head of the tune) what you'll find with this track is something very similar to Hank Mobley's "Dippin'", namely a very soulful, very engaging, slice of jazz-funk, done as only Lee Morgan could do it. However the person who makes this album a classic isn't so much the usual suspect of excellence: Wayne Shorter and his brilliant compositional skills and jagged tenor, but rather the pure-hot-fire drumming of Billy Higgins. I think a pretty good case could be made that no one in the history of jazz was a player in more quality recorded sessions than Higgins, one of the two or three greatest ever drummers in jazz. This is a man who could truely do it all, from the high speed Tony Williams like drumming on this album, to, fast forward forty years, his verging on languid, anticipating-improv with Charles Lloyd. Billy Higgins kept the fire burning for a long time, and under many different jazz-pots, but with this album we get Higgins at his most vital, his most alive and immediate. We also get Lee Morgan at his most engaged, no hint here of some of the going-through-the-motions-tiredness of some sideman sessions, or the hesitant tone of late sixties post-swimming accident Lee. This is Lee reaching into his bag of tricks and shooting them all out of his shining horn. He even throws in a ballad just to show that he can. In short this is an album for people who can see past the cheese of the title, the tired criticisms of the self-superior, and who can deal with an album on its own terms. If you can do that what you'll find is a master on the trumpet doing what he does best. And that is a thing to behold.

Recently out-of-print (though still easily found) it is great to have Lee Morgan's "Gigolo" available once again via this RVG Edition. Don't let the cheesy title fool you -- "The Gigolo" is classic, thoughtful hard bop from a band of Blue Note greats. This disc, recorded over two sessions in the summer of 1965, features the quintet of Wayne Shorter on tenor sax, Harold Mabern on piano, Bob Cranshaw on bass, Billy Higgins on drums, and of course, Lee on trumpet. After the success of "The Sidewinder," all of Lee's albums began with a rocking soul jazz number, and "Yes I Can, No You Can't" fits the bill on "The Gigolo." Next of the album's four Morgan originals is the bright and sunny "Trapped," followed by the quick-hitting "Speedball," a tune that Lee would perform consistently live for the rest of his life. (There's a great version on "Live At The Lighthouse" -- see my review.) The stunning, reflective title-track (an alternate take is additionally included) is next, and the performances conclude in very un-Lee Morgan fashion with the medium-tempo ballad "You Go To My Head," the album's only standard. With "The Gigolo," Morgan demonstrates that he has once again found the winning formula for a successful jazz album.

A great album ! Lee Morgan and Wayne Shorter are a great combination. I always felt that Lee Morgan had the greatest trumpet phrasing and sound, and this album proves it. The title track is wonderful with hints of Latin in the melody, and has all the vitality in the world. The opening track - "yes I can no you can't" is F U N K Y and will get you moving to its beat immediately. The second track "trapped" shows what I mean about Morgan's amazing phrasing. It also has a short and tasteful solo by Harold Mabern Jr. the pianist. The third track (speedball) has an evasive melody and interesting chord progressions. It may be the most sophisticated track on the cd (but it is still funky !) Wayne Shorter plays great here (as always) and although he does not outshine Morgan - he is almost his equal. I love the concept of the rhythm section - all wonderful musicians - pushing the soloists without taking over. I loved it and my friends loved it. Buy and enjoy !!!
