ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
THIS PROJECT COVERS A PROLIFIC PERIOD IN LEE MORGAN'S CAREER
FROM 1963-1968. DURING THAT PERIOD, IT IS EASY TO HEAR AND FIND
MUSIC BY LEE MORGAN THAT 'WAS HEAVILY INFLUENCED BY AFRICIAN RHYTHMIC
PATTERNS AND TITLES ...
FOR EXAMPLE ... "ZAMBIA", "AFREAKA", "MR KENYATTA"& "EXOTIQUE"
ARE BRIEF EXAMPLES OF THESE INFLUENCES.
YOU WILL ALSO NOTICE IN THIS PROGRAM, HOW ROBERTO MAGRIS AND
CREW HAVE RE-CREATED THOSE RHYTHMS, MELODIC CONTRASTS AND
TEXTURES WHICH HAVE BECOME A SORT OF SIGNATURE SOUND FOR LEE
MORGAN. THUS, YOU WILL HEAR DRUMS, CONGAS AND VIBRAPHONE
EMPHASISED THROUGH OUT OUR PROJECT.
OF COURSE, LEE MORGAN'S MUSIC IS ALSO FULL OF BLUES, BUT, NOT THE
TRADITIONAL BLUES AS WE KNOW IT, NOR THE BOPPISH KIND.
LEE MORGAN'S BLUES STYLE, IS CLOSER TO COLTRANE'S MODAL WAY OF
PLAYING THE BLUES.
SO, WE DECIDED TO INCLUDE THE TRACKS "GET YO'SELF TOGETHER",
"HELEN'S RITUAL", "CUNNING LEE" AND OTHERS THAT SOUND SO FRESH
AND CATCHY IN THIS PERIOD.
WE HAVE ENDEAVORED TO MAINTAIN THE ORIGINAL SPIRIT BEHIND THE
MUSIC, YET, PRESENT THE MUSIC THROUGH ANOTHER GENERATION OF
YOUNG JAZZ ARTISTS THAT WE ASSEMBLED FOR THIS GREAT PROJECT.
THE "NEW" COMPOSITION WRITTEN BY ROBERTO MAGRIS ENTITLED
"LIBREVILLE", IS EXACTLY WITHIN THIS MUSICAL TARGET.
THE MUSIC IS A DEVOTIONAL HARD BOP THEME IN THE MANNER OF THE /
BLUE NOTE CLASSICS OF LEE MORGAN. THE TITLES ARE ALSO IN THE
STYLE OF LEE MORGAN, EVEN IF THE INSPIRATION COMES FROM TRIESTE,
ITALY OFF THE SHORES OF THE ADRATIC SEA!
IN FACT, SEVERAL YEARS AGO, ROBERTO MAGRIS PERFORMED IN
LIBREVILLE, THE CAPITAL CITY OF GABON IN EQUATORIAL AFRICA.
THESE PERFORMANCES WERE WITH THE LOCAL TRADITIONAL PLA YERS
WITH THEIR TRIBAL STRING INSTRUMENTS. ALSO, ROBERTO MAGRIS
PLAYED A MEMORABLE PERFORMANCE WITH A BUNCH OF REAL LOCAL
JAZZ MUSICIANS IN THE ONLY JAZZ CLUB IN THAT CITY.
THE INSTRUMENTATION INCLUDED AFRICAN DRUM KITS AND
PERCUSSION INSTRUMENTS.
THAT SOUND IS EXCITING AND CREATES A BRIDGE BETWEEN MODERN
JAZZ AND THE SOUNDS OF NATIVE AFRICA. IT IS NOTEWORTHY, THAT
THESE FEELINGS AND SENSES ARE RECALLED IN CONNECTION TO THIS
"NEW" COMPOSITION "LIBREVILLE AND THIS LEE MORGAN PROJECT!
THE SECOND ORIGINAL COMPOSITION BY ROBERTO MAGRIS ENTITLED "A
SUMMER'S KISS", HAS AN ARTISTIC KINSHIP SIMILAR TO THE LEE MORGAN
CLASSIC "CEORA".
THIS COMPOSITION IS OVERRUN WITH MORE ARTICULATED AND UP TO
DATE HARMONIES STARTED WITH "CEORA" IN VOLUME 1 AND
PROGRESSED TO SOMETHING ELSE FROM TODAY'S FEELINGS IN VOLUME
2.
WE WANTED TO MAKE SOMETHING DIFFERENT WITH THIS PROJECT YET
COMPLIMENTARY TO IT. WE HAVE THE EXPLOSIVE "TOOTIE" HEATH ON DRUMS IN
VOLUME 1. NOW, HOWEVER, WE HAVE SOMETHING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT!
WITH A DIFFERENT FRONTLINE OF ARTISTS, A DIFFERENT APPROACH AND
SENSITIVITY TO LEE MORGAN'S MUSIC. EVEN A DIFFERENT SOUND.
THE LISTENER WILL DERIVE COMPLETE SATISFACTION WITH OUR
COMPREHENSIVE APPROACH TO LEE MORGAN'S MUSIC. IT IS MADE WITH LOVE
AND CREATIVITY! SOMETHING YOU WOULD EXPECT FROM A LEADING
MODERN JAZZ FIGURE, SUCH AS LEE MORGAN.
WITH SO MANY BEAUTIFUL TITLES WITH LEE MORGAN AS A SIDE
MUSICIAN AND LEADER, WE HOPE YOU WILL TRULY ENJOY OUR MUSICAL
TRIBUTE TO THE LEGEND, LEE MORGAN.
