Lee Morgan – Caramba

★★★☆☆ = Good!

Sounds like?

post bop

Moods

jivey dinner party

Thoughts

The title track stands out but the rest I thought was just ok, good from a post-bop perspective.

Great instrumentation, especially Morgan's trumpet playing, so it's hard not to enjoy if you're into jazz.

Lee Morgan – The Gigolo

★★★☆☆ = Good!

What’s it sound like?

Swinging Bop

Thoughts
An all around solid bop outing:

‘Yes I can, no you can’t’ starts things off strong with a number of melodic lines and quick tasteful solos from the band.

‘Trapped’ features a nice dueling solo between Lee and the sax player.

The self titled track is another good one perhaps best displaying the albums good playing without overdone flair.
