This is one of Morgan's better efforts. There are several things noteworthy about this album.
1- Morgan is outstanding. His tone is clear and strong. While he doesn't play "pretty" like Art Farmer, he is capable of lyric playing. He has been influenced by Clifford Brown, although his tone isn't quite as warm as Brownie's.
2- This group played great together. The always welcome warm-toned tenor of Hank Mobley is a plus, and Herbie Hancock hadn't yet gotten commercial and he also excels.
3- Morgan is a surprisingly adept composer. Everything on the album is an original except "Ill Wind", and two of Morgan's tunes, the title track and "Ceora" are gems. "Cornbread" is a down-home funky blues, and "Ceora" is a bossa-flavored ballad. Both are excellent.
4- The improvisations are outstanding, but even among such stellar colleagues, Morgan stands out.
In short, Morgan was one of the bright young stars of the trumpet in the 50's and 60's. This is a terrific example just how good he was.

RIP my Brothers until we meet again kudos.
There is so much Lee Morgan. I get that not every one is like me, with about five thousand things in queue to listen to, but I just do not have time for the every day Lee. Read morePublished 17 months ago by sPARKs
This is a classic, with a great band playing behind him. Ceora is simply one of his best. Recommended for all.Published on April 11, 2013 by t-n-g
