Cornbread is Lee Morgan’s 1965 masterpiece. The session features five of his most memorable hits including the ballad “Ceora,” “Cornbread,” “Our Man Higgins,” “Ill Wind” and “Most Like Lee.” The legendary trumpeter is joined by a stellar cast of musicians including Herbie Hancock, Billy Higgins, Larry Ridley, Jackie McLean and Hank Mobley. Reaching #7 on Billboard’s Top Jazz Albums, Cornbread is vital for any music lover’s collection.
This session (reissued by Blue Note) is best known for introducing Lee Morgan’s beautiful ballad “Ceora,” but actually all five selections (which include Morgan’s “Cornbread,” “Our Man Higgins,” “Most Like Lee,” and the standard “Ill Wind”) are quite memorable. The trumpeter/leader performs with a perfectly complementary group of open-minded and talented hard bop stylists (altoist Jackie McLean, Hank Mobley on tenor, pianist Herbie Hancock, bassist Larry Ridley, and drummer Billy Higgins) and creates a Blue Note classic that is heartily recommended.
