Benny Golson’s writing for this date uplifts it beyond most of the jam session sets of the period. Trumpeter Lee Morgan (then 19) is in excellent form, holding his own with his impressive sidemen (trombonist Curtis Fuller, George Coleman on tenor and alto, pianist Ray Bryant, bassist Paul Chambers and drummer Art Taylor). Highlights include “City Lights,” “You’re Mine You” and “Just By Myself.” This fine session has been reissued as part of Lee Morgan’s four-set Mosaic box set.
