This is a different approach to normal from Lee Morgan, adopting some of the compositional techniques that other progressive jazz artists were experimenting with in the mid 60's. It's a shame Morgan didn't look into this approach more, because the results here are great. This would be in no small part due to the band he plays with, featuring Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock, Reggie Workman and Billy Higgins, all known for their contributions to the "new thing". Guitarist Grant Green may have been out of his comfort zone, but he was clearly very adaptive as his playing here proves. Morgan's playing was also seemingly more measured than his younger days, especially on the title track and "Melancholee". The title track is the highlight for me though, and its extended playing length yields wonderful results. The rest of the tracks are also great, and feature fantastic playing from all involved, especially Shorter. Highly recommended, and a must-hear for Morgan fans.
