Candy is one of the earliest documentations of Lee Morgan's trumpet brilliance. The then 19-year-old appears as the sole horn in a quartet with pianist Sonny Clark, bassist Doug Watkins, and drummer Art Taylor. This would be Morgan's only quartet date, in fact. It consists almost entirely of standards, including the major pop hits "All the Way" and "Personality." In this regard, Candy makes for an interesting comparison with Standards, Morgan's long-lost septet session from 1967 (which didn't see release until 1998).

Among Candy's other highlights are Irving Berlin's "Who Do You Love, I Hope" and Jimmy Heath's uptempo "C.T.A." (Miles Davis recorded the latter on Volume 2 of his famous 1953 Blue Note series.) The CD reissue adds a blistering, previously unreleased take of Rodgers & Hammerstein's "All at Once You Love Her."
