365 Days of Album Recommendations – Nov 25

Lee Morgan – The Sidewinder


This album was SUCH a big deal for Blue Note Records. This was a straight up HIT … not something Blue Note was all that familiar with at that point.

Retroactively, some folks have filed this as seminal soul jazz, while others have locked it into the hard bop canon, and still others simply call it critical listening.

Me, I’m in the latter camp. If you dig jazz, you listen to this. Simple.
