For this lesser-known Lee Morgan LP, the trumpeter was starting to stretch beyond hard bop into more modal areas while retaining his easily recognizable sound. None of Morgan's originals (which are performed along with pianist Cedar Walton's "Afreaka" and Cal Massey's "The Cry of My People") caught on, but the music is creatively performed by the trumpeter, altoist Jackie McLean (who was always a perfect musical partner), the obscure tenor Frank Mitchell, Walton, bassist Victor Sproles, and drummer Billy Higgins.
Personnel: Lee Morgan (trumpet); Jackie McLean (alto saxophone); Frank Mitchell (tenor saxophone); Cedar Walton (piano); Harold Mabern (bass instrument); Billy Higgins (drums).
