The Sidewinder (Remastered 1999/Rudy Van Gelder Edition)
Label: Blue Note Records
The title track was a club and jukebox hit and helped to make boogie-fied soul jazz the lingua franca of 1960s dancehalls. The rest of the album is just as good, if more firmly rooted in the classic Blue Note hard bop sound. Joe Henderson and Billy Higgins are only two members of Lee Morgan's cohesive quintet.
