Personnel : Kenny Dorham, trumpet on all tracks, plus : Charles Davis (bar), Steve Kuhn (p), Jimmy Garrison (b), Butch Warren (b), Buddy Enlow (d) - New York, February 11 & 12, 1960.
Composer of “Blue Bossa”, one of the most popular jazz standards of all time, trumpeter Kenny Dorham was a rather neglected and little known figure during his lifetime. Decades later, not much has changed. Greatly overshadowed by the stardom of Dizzy Gillespie, Clifford Brown and Fats Navarro, his recordings demand serious re-evaluation.
Originally on the Time label, this LP features the excellent (but always underrated) trumpeter Kenny Dorham heading a quintet that also includes baritonist Charles Davis, pianist Steve Kuhn, either Jimmy Garrison or Butch Warren on bass, and drummer Buddy Enlow. The results are not quite essential but everyone plays up to par, performing three of Dorham's originals plus "In Your Own Sweet Way," "Monk's Mood," and "This Love of Mine." It's fine hard bop, the modern mainstream music of the period.
