The Sidewinder

This is a great song to turn non-jazz listeners onto for their first test-drive. It could be considered "crossover" music, because it really transcends any musical genre. Rockers can appreciate it, hip-hoppers and bluesmen all can find something of value in this song, and the amount of swagger Lee brought was just off the charts goodness. When you look at how modern his music sounded 55 years ago, that makes it even more amazing. If someone released this today, it would sound hip and fresh.

My mother used to play this record when I was a boy!! She had really good taste in music!! I was so lucky to have a mother like her! I owe it to her and my Dad for becoming a musician!! Lee Morgan was ahead of his time!!

Great mum, Ronald


An incredible all-time groove classic-----one of those rare occasions when jazz and non-jazz fans all get on board!But do not overlook Lee's masterpiece solo,with it's perfect use of spacing,wit, and that classic Morgan swag.
