Wonderful to see LEEWAY highlighted. Lee Morgan is one of my very favorite trumpter players, and Jackie Mac is likewise one of my favorite altoists. Both are wonderful players and I never get tired of their music (which I have very near complete on CD and LP). I'm not sure you can say LEEWAY could have been any of the players album. Lee was such a potent force, that even when he is billed as a sideman on other albums, he still often comes across as if he was the actual leader. It was that confident, brash and brassy sound that does it.
