Candy was recorded in 1959 by Lee Morgan, who by this time had already led five albums for Blue Note, and had logged valuable time with not only the Dizzy Gillespie Big Band, but also as a member of (what some consider) the finest edition of Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers. "Candy" is a unique item in Morgan's history for it is the only quartet album that Morgan ever recorded. In fact, no other horns were needed! "Candy" features the trumpeter playing with beauty, fire, passion and a mature lyricism exceeding most musicians double his age. Joined by a rhythm section of young giants including pianist Sonny Clark, Morgan burns on the faster pieces but puts plenty of feeling into "All the Way," the soulful "Since I Fell for You" and "Personality." Contains 7 tracks including 1 Bonus Track: "All at Once You Love Her". The definitive versions of Blue Note are on XRCD24 - the optimization of CD mastering and manufacturing. Plays on all standard CD players.
