Lee Morgan: Taru
Two arrangements drive forcefully in hard bop fashion and two settle down gently as ballads, while the remaining two stand out as gospel-tinged swingers. Recommended, Taru is a part of Blue Note’s Connoisseur CD Series, a Limited Edition. Its 24-bit resolution offers an excellent source of sound from each member of Morgan’s quintet. This LP reissue clocks in at 38:09, but what’s accomplished in that relatively short time counts for much more.
