The “Lee Morgan Story” collaboration grew from John Robinson and J. Rawl’s brilliant 2009 album The 1960′s “Jazz Revolution Again.” The album is a celebration of the connections of jazz and hip-hop and it is on this album that “The Lee Morgan Story” was first heard. On this tune John Robinson serves as not only an emcee but a story teller and historian. Acclaimed bassist Ben Williams recreated the tune and released it on his debut album State of the Art with a jazz band that features trumpeter Christian Scott. Check out Ben Williams and John Robinson discussing recently on WBGO:
