READ

Wikipedia : This day (February 19, 1972), in New York, died Edward Lee Morgan, an American hard bop trumpeter.

@ The Hard Bop : Suddenly, a trumpet soared out of the band into a break that was so vividly brilliant and electrifying that all conversation in the room stopped and those of us who were gesturing were frozen with hands outstretched.

@allmusic : An all-around master of his instrument modeled after Clifford Brown, Morgan boasted an effortless, virtuosic technique and a full, supple, muscular tone that was just as powerful in the high register.

@last.fm : In 1956 he began recording as a leader, mainly for the Blue Note label; eventually he recorded twenty-five albums for the company. Morgan’s principal influence as a player was Clifford Brown, having had direct contact with him before Brown’s premature death.

@Discogs : Jazz trumpeter, mainly associated with hard bop, known for his work with Dizzy Gillespie, John Coltrane, and Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers, as well as his 1963 album The Sidewinder. He was fatally shot in 1972.
