180-gram LP

Mastered by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio from the original master tape

Plated and pressed at RTI

The Blue Note Tone Poet Series was born out of Blue Note President Don Was' admiration for the exceptional audiophile Blue Note LP reissues presented by Music Matters. Was brought Joe Harley (from Music Matters), a.k.a. the "Tone Poet," on board to curate and supervise a series of reissues from the Blue Note family of labels.

This sleek, beautifully paced Lee Morgan album was recorded in 1966 but mysteriously shelved until 1984. Alongside the trumpeter, the quintet features a superb lineup — Hank Mobley (tenor sax)/Cedar Walton (piano)/Paul Chambers (bass)/Billy Higgins (drums) — all playing at the top of their game. Highlights include the Duke Pearson gem "Is That So" and the enticing title track penned by Morgan. Blue Note Tone Poet Series features all-analog, remastered 180-gram vinyl in deluxe gatefold packaging.
