|An extremely rare and long unavailable performance!
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, this underrated bebop giant was nevertheless a highly talented musician who performed with some of the most remarkable players of the era.
The present concert, which only previously appeared on a rare (and long out of print) LP, is, therefore, an extremely welcome find. Recorded live in New York, August 21, 1964.
Kenny Dorham (trumpet); Barry Harris (piano); Julian Ewell (bass); Albert Heath (drums)
2 BONUS TRACKS: Kenny Dorham (trumpet); Tete Montoliu (piano); Niels-Henning Orsted Pedersen (bass); Alex Riel (drums); Recorded live in Copenhagen, Denmark, December 5 and 19, 1963.
