A while back I mentioned that someday I would post this song, and now that day has come.


The tune is from Lee Morgan’s Live at the Lighthouse album, which features some very creative writing and playing from Bennie Maupin.  “Neophilia” features Bennie’s bass clarinet, an instrument I wish was better represented in jazz.

35 years after the original recording, Bennie reprised the tune with his own group, this time as a simple groove in 7/4.
