The most common reaction after hearing Lee Morgan's Tom Cat is "why on Earth didn't Blue Note release this at the time!" The great trumpeter, only 26 at the time of this recording, and his all-star cast with Jackie McLean, Art Blakey, Curtis Fuller and McCoy Tyner are a who's who of the mid-1960s and hard bop scene. Quite simply, this is one of Lee Morgan's finest sessions. Even Blue Note owner Alfred Lion, when asked, was hard pressed to understand why a session of this caliber was held back. However Morgan was recording so frequently for Blue Note during this era that several of his finest recordings were lost in the shuffle as the label looked for another hit to rival the massive success of Lee's The Sidewinder.
