Shipping Destinations for this item
Sorry, this product is currently unavailable.
As the title suggests, PECKIN' has the spirit of a blowing session with a hefty amount of up-tempo rousers. The bopping opener "High and Flighty" gets things kicking with frenzied ensemble work and hard-blowing solos. The only standard of the set is the classic "Speak Low," here presented as a bouncing rhumba with exceptionally lyrical contributions by Morgan. The swinging title track and the aptly titled burner "Stretchin' Out" both offer more opportunities for all to display their wares with plenty of hard bop gusto. Finally, "Git-Go Blues" closes the session with a long, rolling groove that swings hard and deep. Also included are three alternate takes that offer even more blowing and swinging.
