Great post sir, ¡and what a great song!. In fact I wrote a post in my blog about this song just 3 days ago (sorry, in spanish). I was talking about the difficult to known who is playing when the “trumpet war” begins, and, I agree with your opinnion: nobody loses, we win.

best regards

Nice article on one of the greatest jazz trumpet happenings ever. To have been there that night would have been awesome. Both Freddie and Lee were amazing. I had the pleasure of meeting Freddie once backstage at one of his performances. I asked him “tell me about Lee Morgan”. His reply, “Lee was a crazy motherfucker man, crazy motherfucker”.

HI! Interesting info. One fact is that Freddie Hubbard was slightly older than Lee Morgan, by just months. In fact, in the Year 1938, it was a great year for Trumpeters. There were 3 Great Trumpeters born within the first 7 months of that year: Booker Little; Freddie Hubbard; and Lee Morgan. It doesn’t get any better than that.
