Here's Lee Morgan is an album by jazz trumpeter Lee Morgan originally released on the Vee-Jay label. It was recorded on February 8, 1960 and features performances by Morgan with Clifford Jordan, Wynton Kelly, Paul Chambers and Art Blakey.

Reception[edit]

The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow awarded the album 4 stars stating "The music is good solid hard bop that finds Lee Morgan (already a veteran at age 21) coming out of the Clifford Brown tradition to display his own rapidly developing style. Matched with Clifford Jordan on tenor, pianist Wynton Kelly, bassist Paul Chambers and drummer Art Blakey, Morgan's album could pass for a Jazz Messengers set.".[2]
