The Rumproller has seen several reissues on vinyl since its initial release, but the last all-analog pressing was in Blue Note has now corrected that omission by reissuing it as part of its 80th Anniversary series, with Kevin Gray handling the mastering and Optimal, in Germany, pressing the gm vinyl. And when Morgan and Joe Henderson, on tenor sax, state the theme, the two instruments are easier to follow, and their aural images are more three-dimensional. On CD, his drums sound muted, and both horns sound flatter, seeming to stop at the edges of the speakers.
With the new vinyl I could more easily visualize the bell of each horn, and feel the effort and emotional force in the stronger passages. On CD, that effect is dulled. But that makes the soundstage feel crowded, and the sound aggressively bright. Here's Lee Morgan Lee Morgan. Copy the following link to share it Copy. You are currently listening to samples.

Many jazz fans will point to The Sidewinder as Morgan? But for me, purely in a musical sense, The Gigolo remains his finest achievement.
A double-LP upon release, it represents the last material recorded by Lee Morgan as leader before his unfortunate and untimely death. Morgan had always said that Miles Davis was one of his inspirations, and the jazz-fusion that Davis had piloted had clearly influenced Morgan here. Using a larger-than-normal ensemble, Morgan makes his way through five compositions that show exactly which direction his music was heading in the ?
Check out his solo on? However, one drawback against the label is the holding back of this album until almost 10 years after Morgan?
A master of his craft, Morgan was able to attract top names to play with him, and a look at the personnel suggests that, with the main attraction being Art Blakey making a rare sideman appearance at this point in his career. The title track is a nice funky tune in the tradition of? I could not agree more. The true highlight though is McCoy Tyner? Twilight Mist? Very much a classic album in the Morgan discography.

I have the calculated view that 21st Century working professionals need to spread themselves thin when it comes to personal time. How do I organize my music? Badly, for precisely the reason you indicate: Not enough time to do it right.
I should note that this applies only to LPs, since my CDs are ripped and boxed, the resulting files organized by Roon. Usually my goal is just to stick the record back on the shelf among the leader's other records. If a session has more than one leader, I make a judgment as to who is dominant. For a few albums, I've bought extra copies so that I'll have one in each leader's section. The main point, though, is that although I've got ideas about how I'd like to do it, I don't do much organizing within a particular leader's section, which means finding a particular record in the Mingus or Ellington sections--the biggest--always takes a few minutes.

Jazz collecting has an archaeological aspect to it; it's one of my favorite aspects of the hobby. Far more than most other genres, jazz evolved over its first several decades, and it did so on record.
Every musician was distinctive, changed from session to session, and interacted with other musicians in ways specific to the ensemble, the time, the place, and the mood. Every record, live or from a studio, is a snapshot of where jazz was precisely then and there. You can get to know musicians' styles, and with practice, you can really hear what's going on.
