Inside The Sidewinder

The legendary bassist Bob Cranshaw reflects on Lee Morgan.

My colleague Bret Primack, aka Jazz Video Guy, sat down with Bob Cranshaw and asked him about playing and recording with the legendary trumpeter Lee Morgan on the Blue Note classic recording The Sidewinder from 1963.

The Sidewinder, Lee Morgan’s 24-bar blues with an infectious bass line and backbeat, instantly became one of the most popular pieces in modern jazz history. Every track on this classic album is a gem.” –
