The Rumproller is an album by jazz trumpeter Lee Morgan and was produced by Alfred Lion. Recorded on April 9 & 21, 1965, it was released later that year.
To follow up on his unexpected boogaloo hit “The Sidewinder,” Lee Morgan recorded Andrew Hill’s somewhat similar “The Rumproller” but this time the commercial magic was not there. However the trumpeter, tenor-saxophonist Joe Henderson, pianist Ronnie Mathews, bassist Victor Sproles and drummer Billy Higgins all play quite well on the title cut, two of Morgan’s songs (the bossa nova “Eclipso” is somewhat memorable), a ballad tribute to Billie Holiday and Wayne Shorter’s “Edda.” This album is worth picking up but it is not essential.
