    I once played with a bass player who went on to join Blakey's last band. That was my closest link to Bird.

    This is a classic masterpiece of Jazz music. It is essential for anyone who cares to explore the idiom.

    Lee Morgan was such an utterly brilliant player. I really should deep dive back into his work.

    Bobby Timmons wrote some very solid tunes that became popular.
    “This Here”, and “Dat Dere”, as well as “Moanin”

    Thank you. Passing this music on to generations to come is so important. We all owe so much to these talented musicians of the 50s and 60s.

    Art Blakey always had a killer ensemble. Ugetsu is the record that I really remember fondly. Here's another live clip from a few years later with the ensemble from Ugetsu which featured a young Wayne Shorter & Freddie Hubbard. The rhythm section is of course stellar.

    Blakey always looked so joyful behind the band. He had so many great players over the years, and always seemed to encourage new young recruits.

    Fantastic album. Along Came Betty is my favorite cut.

    I have a 'Best Of Lee Morgan' CD that is so good ( and long) it's a Jazz fave of mine to put on for Uber driving- folks dig it! ( at least the enlightened ones!)

    Did Cannonball Adderly & Band ever do "Moanin"'? I know they played the other Bobby Tommons songs, and they are similar in that gospel feel

    I read years ago ( discovering Jazz around 2000-late comer) in Down Beat
    - that this music was called "soul-jazz' :
    It had a blues head melody >then improv by soloists> then back to the melody- my point is things never get too far away from the blues.

    Then the magazine listed favorites in soul-jazz, and this was great for me, to explore...Cannonball was on the cover

    I just know I love it!
