Listening to Lee Morgan blow his molten solo on "A Night In Tunisia", the opening track of 'The Cooker', it's hard to fathom that he was only 19 years old at the time. Recorded just 2 weeks after Morgan's dazzling performance on John Coltrane's masterpiece 'Blue Train' in September 1957, 'The Cooker' was in fact Morgan's 5th Blue Note album as a leader. Bassist Paul Chambers and drummer Philly Joe Jones (both of whom also played on Blue Train) are joined by baritone saxophone master Pepper Adams and the great Bobby Timmons on piano on this superbly swinging session.
