Jackie McLean And Lee Morgan: The Dynamic Hardbop Duo

"Jackie and Lee: a Hardbop Dynamic Duo" features the mid-1960s Blue Note recordings of alto saxophonist Jackie McLean and trumpeter Lee Morgan. Both veterans of Art Blakey‘s Jazz Messengers, McLean and Morgan joined in the studio on several occasions to produce some of the most searing hardbop records Blue Note ever put out. Their trenchant, biting attack, an ability to convey a kind of street lyricism, and a sardonic humor in Morgan‘s approach coupled with an edgy pathos in McLean‘s led jazz writer David Rosenthal to call them "a frontline match made in hardbop heaven."

We‘ll hear selections from the Morgan album Infinity and the McLean LP Consequence, in addition to sides from Morgan‘s Cornbread date and the Grachan Moncur album Evolution.
