Standards is an album by jazz trumpeter Lee Morgan released on the Blue Note label. It was recorded on January 13, 1967 but not released until 1998 and features performances by Morgan, Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter, Billy Higgins, James Spaulding, Pepper Adams and Mickey Roker with arrangements by Duke Pearson.



The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow awarded the album 2½ stars stating "Most of the selections, although allegedly "standards," were of more recent vintage (like "A Lot of Livin' to Do" and "If I Were a Carpenter"), and even if Morgan and the other musicians play well, nothing too exciting occurs. Although not a dud, it was not a major loss that this recording stayed in the vaults.".
