We Got The Jazz

Lee Morgan is straight up dope! His album 'Search for the New Land' is one of the first jazz albums I ever purchased (back in the day, modal jazz was my addiction & fopp was my haven)! The line-up he assembled for this LP reads like a legends of jazz list:

Lee Morgan: Trumpet
Wayne Shorter: Tenor Saxophone
Grant Green: Guitar
Herbie Hancock: Piano
Reggie Workman: Bass
Billy Higgins: Drums

To put it in modern terms..imagine a full length Hip Hop album with:

Ghostface Killah

all in their prime & produced by J Dilla!

'Mr. Kenyatta' is one of my pick tracks from the album, brownie points for anyone who knows who sampled this track..sit down, grab a rum & cool out
