Looking for the original 1990 Blue Note remastering ?
German Artist | California | 05/13/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Five stars for the music.

If you decide, after reading the critial reviews that maybe the new RVG remastering isn't for you, or would like to compare music samples between the RVG remastering and the sound of the original Blue Note release, here's how to find the original remastering, which sounds warm and full and really pleasant (like often original Blue Note releases sound). I very often prefer the older releases.

You can pick it up for less than a dollar (plus 2.98 shipping). I did :)

Morgan's Most Famous Album
Roger Berlind | NY, USA | 02/21/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The Sidewinder is certainly Lee Morgan's most famous album. The title track was a smash hit at the time and was even featured in a Chrysler TV commercial during the 1965 World Series. And it has sold well ever since.

While the funky title track is highly enjoyable, the other 4 tunes and alternate take of "Totem Pole" are equally outstanding and full of the blues. In fact, "Totem Pole" is probably the most sophisticated and interesting tune and "Gary's Notebook" is also quite inventive. "Boy, What a Night" cranks up the heat for a waltz and "Hocus-Pocus" closes the album in a relaxed mood.

Morgan is outstanding on trumpet throughout and Joe Henderson is just as good on tenor sax. The sound of the RVG remastering is very clear with plenty of bass and cymbals so that you can hear all the music behind the soloists."
