The best 8 minutes and 40 seconds I heard all day

Several times today I have dialed up on my iPod Lee Morgan's "Mr. Kenyatta," a wonderful track from his 1964 album "Search for the New Land."
Morgan plays a blistering trumpet solo, as always, but a trio of soon-to-be-famous sidemen do their parts to carry the tune as well.
Wayne Shorter plays tenor sax on the song, Grant Green plays guitar and the pianist is Herbie Hancock. Their solos are all memorable.
I listened to it during a lengthy midday walk (home and back from the office -- it took up nearly my entire lunch hour). I also listened driving around today and I am listening to it right now. Classic stuff.
