Candy is an album by jazz trumpeter Lee Morgan released on the Blue Note label in 1958, featuring performances by Morgan, Sonny Clark, Doug Watkins and Art Taylor.

Reception[edit]

The Allmusic review by Stacia Proefrock awarded the album 4 stars, stating: "Not merely a technical marvel, his tone on this album was sweet and his playing fluid, infused with joy and crisply articulated emotion. Morgan would later turn out to be an expert songwriter, but here songs like Buddy Johnson's 'Since I Fell for You,' and Jimmy Heath's 'C.T.A.' gave him ample space to show off his talents."[2]
