Lee Morgan • The Sidewinder




The Sidewinder es un álbum de jazz de 1964 del trompetista Lee Morgan. El tema que da nombre al álbum es uno de los temas que dio forma al género del soul jazz, convirtiéndose en un estándar jazz. Se publicó una versión editada como single. El álbum se convirtió en un éxito comercial, y una gran influencia - muchos álbumes posteriores de Lee Morgan, y otros discos de Blue Note, reprodujeron el formato de este álbum, comenzando con un blues funky seguido por varios temas hard bop.
Las 5 pistas del álbum cuentan con el saxo tenor Joe Henderson. También cuentan con el destacado batería Billy Higgins, y el contrabajo Bob Cranshaw, quien estuvo asociado durante largo tiempo con Sonny Rollins.
Todas las composiciones son del propio Morgan, siendo temas basados en el blues exceptuando el tema "Hocus Pocus" de estilo de la música de Cole Porter.

The Sidewinder is a 1964 album by the jazz trumpeter Lee Morgan, recorded at the Van Gelder Studio in Englewood, New Jersey, USA. It was released on the Blue Note label as BLP 4157 and BST 84157.
The title track, "The Sidewinder", was one of the defining recordings of the soul jazz genre, becoming a jazz standard. An edited version was released as a single.
The album became a huge seller, and highly influential - many subsequent Morgan albums, and other Blue Note discs, would duplicate (or approximate) this album's format, by following a long, funky opening blues with a handful of conventional hard bop tunes. Record producer Michael Cuscuna recalls the unexpected success: "the company issued only 4,000 copies upon release. Needless to say, they ran out of stock in three or four days. And 'The Sidewinder' became a runaway smash making the pop 100 charts." By January 1965, the album had reached No. 25 on the Billboard chart. The title track was used as the music in a Chrysler television advertisement and as a theme for television shows.
