Minor Move is an album by American hard bop tenor Tina Brooks. It features performances by Brooks, Lee Morgan, Sonny Clark, Doug Watkins and Art Blakey. It was recorded on March 16, 1958, and was Brooks' first album as a leader for Blue Note Records. The album, however, was shelved for many years until being issued in Japan in 1980, as Blue Note GXF 3072. In 2000, Minor Move was released on CD. The piece "Nutville" is sometimes credited to Lee Morgan, but in truth, as Cuscuna explains in the liner notes to the 2000 release, "Lee brought the tune to the session, but never claimed credit for it. Curtis Fuller also confirms that it was indeed a Tina Brooks original." [2]
