Recorded on November 4, 1956 at Rudy Van Gelder Studio in Hackensack, New Jersey.

Indeed! is Lee Morgan's debut album. Every genre has its prodigies. Jazz had Lee Morgan. At 18, Morgan was already a mature improviser with a sound and a confident style of his own. While influenced by Clifford Brown who died just a few months before Morgan recorded his debut album, Morgan was rapidly becoming one of the great hard bop trumpeters, filling the huge vacuum left by Brown's absence. 

He holds his own with altoist Clarence Sharpe and an all-star rhythm section that includes Horace Silver and Philly Joe Jones. As each note on Presenting Lee Morgan shows, he was not only a young trumpeter on his way but a great player from the start.

The "golden age" of recordings was from 1955 to 1965, at the beginning of the LP and the stereo era, where pure vacuum tube amplification helped produce recordings demonstrating unparalleled fidelity and warmth, lifelike presence and illumination.

Like all Music Matters Jazz releases, this audiophile vinyl reissue is remastered from the original analogue Van Gelder studio tapes and pressed on 180g virgin vinyl at RTI. The highest quality gatefold cover features original session photography on the inside.
