Usual Suspect – Lee Morgan

December 8 @ 20 h 00 min - 23 h 30 min

Presented by Vito Nicholas

At his high-flying, raw, prodigious best, Lee has the sound of a man whose doctor told him ‘You’ve got to play everything today because you won’t get the chance tomorrow.’

Going toe-to-toe with the likes of Coltrane, Gillespie, Shorter, McLean, Lee is shorthand for a virtuoso and a man on fire.  His reputation as trumpet player is matched by his deft, tender and imaginative touch as a composer.

He achieved more in his thirty-three years than most men achieve in a lifetime. He joined Dizzy Gillespie’s band when he was just 18, played on Coltrane’s Blue Train when he was 19, and recorded 25 albums as a band leader on Blue Note.

Not sticking to just Lee’s discography – and hence the name for the evening, Usual Suspect, I will be playing a few albums Lee appears on – particularly his work with John Coltrane, Art Blakey and Jackie McLean.
