A Night In Tunisia

Lee Morgan, trumpet
Pepper Adams, baritone saxophone
Bobby Timmons, piano
Paul Chambers, bass

Recorded at Rudy Van Gelder Studio,
Hackensack, NJ, September 29, 1957

The trumpeter, then just 19, teams up with baritonist Pepper Adams, pianist Bobby Timmons, bassist Paul Chambers and drummer Philly Joe Jones for a particularly strong set that is highlighted by a lengthy and fiery “Night in Tunisia,” “Lover Man” and a rapid rendition of “Just One of Those Things.” Morgan plays remarkably well for his age (already ranking just below Dizzy Gillespie and Miles Davis), making this an essential acquisition.
