Lee Morgan – Inner Passions Out (1971)

Inner Passions Out is from the album The Last session by Lee Morgan, recorded on September 17 & 18, 1971 at Van Gelder Studio, Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey. Released on Blue Note in 1972.

the 17-minute “Inner Passions Out,” written by Waits, holds an Arabic feel with the drummer also playing a shenai-sounding recorder. One of the bandmembers (unidentified) on mbira prompts a two-note modal framework from the bass players in an underground-to-free romp stomp. It is unfortunate that the brilliant and forward-thinking Morgan was cut down at such a young age, for as the music was changing, he would have adapted, as this final statement valiantly suggests.
