Title: The Cooker
Release Date: 1957
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/192kHz
Label: Blue Note Records
The Cooker was recorded on September 29, 1957 and released in 1958 on Blue Note Records. Produced by Alfred Lion, it features classic tunes such as “A Night in Tunisia” and “Lover Man”.
The trumpeter, then just 19, teams up with baritonist Pepper Adams, pianist Bobby Timmons, bassist Paul Chambers and drummer Philly Joe Jones for a particularly strong set that is highlighted by a lengthy and fiery “Night in Tunisia,” “Lover Man” and a rapid rendition of “Just One of Those Things.” Morgan plays remarkably well for his age (already ranking just below Dizzy Gillespie and Miles Davis), making this an essential acquisition.
- A Night In Tunisia – 9:23

- Just One Of Those Things – 7:17
- Lover Man – 6:51
