Song of the Week: The Sidewinder

This week's song is the classic "The Sidewinder" by Lee Morgan.  Personnel includes Lee Morgan on trumpet, Joe Henderson on tenor sax, Bob Crenshaw on bass, Billy Higgins on drums, and the great Barry Harris on piano.  Great tune that always leaves a smile on my face.  This weekend I heard a re-imagined version of this song by guitarist John Pizzarelli from his Double Exposure album.  It weaves the tune in with a popular Beatles tune and it works seamlessly.  You should check it out here.

Here is the classic "The Sidewinder":
