Delightfulee is an album by jazz trumpeter Lee Morgan released on the Blue Note label in 1966. It was recorded on April 8 & May 27, 1966 and features performances by Morgan with a quintet featuring Joe Henderson, McCoy Tyner, Bob Cranshaw and Billy Higgins and a big band featuring Ernie Royal, Tom McIntosh, Jim Buffington, Don Butterfield, Phil Woods, Wayne Shorter, Danny Bank and Philly Joe Jones with arrangements by Oliver Nelson.

As Lee Morgan's career moved from hard and post-bop to soul-jazz, Delightfulee serves as a further bridge in a half-and-half fashion. Four of the seven cuts feature his potent quintet with a young and emerging tenor saxophonist, Joe Henderson, as his front line mate, McCoy Tyner ever brilliant on piano, and Billy Higgins firing up the rhythm as only the drummer could.

Exclusively for Prime members. Sample this album Artist (Sample). There is much to enjoy on this album and any Lee Morgan fan will want this. Please keep in mind that I'm measuring this album against the gold standard set by Morgan's massive body of work with Blue Note. I have all of his Blue Note sessions issued on CD (non-boxset) up to now (Jan '08) and I find this one to be the least satisfying.
