By the time of this 1968 session, the quintessential hard-bop trumpeter Lee Morgan, was stretching in several directions at once, pushing into freer forms and also pressing the crossover funk market that he had tapped so brilliantly with The Sidewinder. The different directions are apparent in the sidemen. Bennie Maupin made few recordings in the period, but he was among the most distinctive avant-garde tenor saxophonists, with a blunt, Rollins-inspired approach that would eventually come to the fore on Miles Davis’s Bitches Brew and with Herbie and the Headhunters. Guitarist George Benson explores the funkier side of Wes Montgomery’s style, while the rhythm section of pianist John Hicks, bassist Reggie Workman, and Billy Higgins is perfect for the potent mix of modal, hard-bop, and funk approaches that Morgan was pulling together. The trumpeter plays with his usual intensity, displaying quick musical wits and a sound that’s almost menacing. —Stuart Broomer

Rocket Girl: The Story of Mary Sherman Morgan, America’s First Female Rocket Scientist

Rocket Girl: The Story of Mary Sherman Morgan, America’s First Female Rocket Scientist

AN UNSUNG HEROINE OF THE SPACE AGE—HER STORY FINALLY TOLD.

     This is the extraordinary true story of America’s first female rocket scientist. Told by her son, it describes Mary Sherman Morgan’s crucial contribution to launching America’s first satellite and the author’s labyrinthine journey to uncover his mother’s lost legacy–one buried deep under a lifetime of secrets political, technological, and personal. 
     In 1938, a young German rocket enthusiast named Wernher von Braun had dreams of building a rocket that could fly him to the moon. In Ray, North Dakota, a young farm girl named Mary Sherman was attending high school. In an age when girls rarely dreamed of a career in science, Mary wanted to be a chemist. A decade later the dreams of these two disparate individuals would coalesce in ways neither could have imagined. 
     World War II and the Cold War space race with the Russians changed the fates of both von Braun and Mary Sherman Morgan. When von Braun and other top engineers could not find a solution to the repeated failures that plagued the nascent US rocket program, North American Aviation, where Sherman Morgan then worked, was given the challenge. Recognizing her talent for chemistry, company management turned the assignment over to young Mary.
     In the end, America succeeded in launching rockets into space, but only because of the joint efforts of the brilliant farm girl from North Dakota and the famous German scientist. While von Braun went on to become a high-profile figure in NASA’s manned space flight, Mary Sherman Morgan and her contributions fell into obscurity–until now.

Blending a fascinating personal history with dramatic historical events taking place on the world stage, this compelling narrative brings long-overdue attention to a modest but brilliant woman whose work proved essential for America’s early space program. In 1938, a young German rocket enthusiast named Wernher von Braun had dreams of building a rocket that could fly him to the moon.

In an age when girls rarely dreamed of a career in science, Mary wanted to be a chemist. A decade later the dreams of these two disparate individuals would coalesce in ways neither could have imagined. In a vivid narrative, Morgan relates how World War II and the Cold War space race with the Russians changed the fates of both von Braun and his mother.
