  1. This new Night Lights show, put together with input from members of this board (you are thanked in the outgoing credits!) is now up for online listening: Mob-Lee: Hank Mobley and Lee Morgan
  2. Hank Mobley and Lee Morgan

    I'm working on a Night Lights show for the week after next that features recordings made together by Hank Mobley and Lee Morgan. It's been a real joy to go back and revisit all of their Blue Note sessions (and the early Savoy date as well) and assemble a potential playlist. Here are some potential tracks: "Hank's Shout" (from the Savoy date) "M & M" (with Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers) One of the first three tracks off Peckin' Time "No Room For Squares" "Carolyn" "Ceora" "Straight No Filter" Possibly something from A Slice Of The Top ("Hank's Other Bag") I'll probably use "Syrup And Biscuits" with a fadeout in the opening "newshole" segment (a segment exactly five minutes long that some stations take, while other stations cut away for news). Anyway, curious to hear what other posters here rank as their favorite Mobley-Morgan encounters on record. This is the third Lee Morgan tandem show I've done; the others are Shorter Lee: Lee Morgan and Wayne Shorter and Jackie McLean and Lee Morgan: The Dynamic Hardbop Duo.
  3. Hi all Long time no presence here but saw an advert for a Grant Green Movie....and and then in less than 24 hours a Lee Morgan Movie I called him Morgan Anyone seen these at all? Assuming these are just playing at Jazz Festivals or have people seen DVDs? Apologies if this has appeared elsewhere...tried to search but was very giddy to think these might be coming
  4. Last week's Night Lights show, which takes a look at recordings that trumpeter Lee Morgan and saxophonist Wayne Shorter made together, is now up for online listening: http://indianapublicmedia.org/nightlights/shorter-lee-lee-morgan-wayne-shorter/
  5. Incredible to think that this very fine Lee Morgan session was recorded 50 years ago and promptly left in the can for well over a decade. Marc Myers has put out a great blog post discussing the session here..Myers Blog - The Rajah
